best possible condition for defence. Ammunition must at once be attend to. Whether the South Carolinas attack Fort Sumter or not, its occupation by Anderson tends to prevent anything like compromise.--If they do not attack it, the Republicans will call them cowards. If they do, and are defeated, the Republicans will laugh at them.--If they capture it, of which there is little probability, the Republicans will set up a howl against the rebels. Even now the States of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania are organizing large bodies of volunteers to assist the Government in enforcing the laws — in other words, to help it in coercing the South. Northern papers are jubilant over Anderson's successful trick. On the other hand, the President's refusal to send Anderson back to Fort Moultrie will be a gross violation of his written pledge to maintain the status quo, and that will inflame the whole South. Should the Charlestonians commence hostilities, they will

New England Levies. The report that Massachusetts is about to raise some seven thousand men for the invasion of the South, and Vermont a larger number, requires to be taken with some grains of allowance. That there may be very extensive enrollments on paper is highly probable, judging from the experience of the Revolutionary War. Some may put themselves to the inconvenience of traveling all this distance to accomplish a very quixotic and impracticable crusade; but there will be a good many more who will just go far enough to get upon the pension list. We do not doubt the courage of Massachusetts in the least, but she has always an eye to the main chance. It will not be matter of regret in the South if that State which has led the way in Northern nullification should lead the way in endeavoring to put down Southern nullification. The consistency and conscience of the thing would be eminently characteristic; but both would be overlooked in the universal delight at having the
