If no other State takes the lead, South Carolina will secede (in my opinion) alone, if she es, beyond controversy, that, excepting in South Carolina, the rebellion was not in any sense a popunded revolt easily took root. The State of South Carolina, in addition, had been little else th nation. The Ordinance of Secession of South Carolina was passed in secret session, a little aftemony; after which the chairman proclaimed South Carolina an independent commonwealth. With all the spontaneous revolution. The secession of South Carolina, said one of the chief actors, is not an euitful soil.

It was a brief document, but pregnant wiber circular was the official beginning of South Carolina secession. On the fifth day after the osal was in reality a quasi-recognition of South Carolina's claim to independence, and a misdemeanoreen his first inclination, the Governor of South Carolina had, since Anderson's movement, forcibly ss perhaps the most daring revolutionist in South Carolina, and as commander-in-chief of the State foflag of the United States, the Republic of South Carolina, through its governor, its legislature, it and wrote a brief note to the Governor of South Carolina, demanding to know if the firing on the vefore, I.

th telling effect; and instead of declaring and practising frank and direct adherence to the Government, the union members were fulminating baseless complaints, demanding impossible guarantees, and pleading indulgent excuses for the course of South Carolina and the Cotton Republics. And this condition of misdirected and unstable loyalty was also wide-spread among the leaders and people of the Border States of Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri. How to deal with such a morbid and disturbed pub, from Charleston, from Richmond, waited in anxious suspense for news from Pickens. No substantial encouragement, however, reached him from any quarter. Anderson had no faith in a relief expedition. All union sentiment had disappeared from South Carolina. The Virginia Convention was evidently playing fast and loose with treason; and finally, General Scott was so far wrought upon by the insane cry for concession to gratify the morbid patriotism which yet found expression in the South, that he

Chapter 5: Sumter. Governor Pickens, of South Carolina, began about the 1st of January to build batteries to isolate and reduce Fort Sumter; and the newly made General Beauregard was on the 1st of March sent by the rebel government to Charleston to assume direction of military affairs and to complete the preparations for its capture. The Governor had been exceedingly anxious that the capture should be attempted before the expiration of Mr. Buchanan's presidential termthat is, between the 12th of February and the 4th of March. Mr. Buchanan cannot resist, wrote the Governor to Jefferson Davis, because he has not the power. Mr. Lincoln may not attack, because the cause of quarrel will have been, or may be considered by him, as past. But the rebel President doubtless thought it unwise to risk offending and alienating his party friends at the North by placing the responsibility of such an affront and loss upon their administration. Even when General-Beauregard came, the Governor w

Similar encouragement came from many individuals of lesser note. It even appeared that the spirit of secession was finding a lodgment in the North. A membited States. Whereas, the laws of the United States have been for some time past and now are opposed, and the execution thereof obstructed in the States of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, oue and reprisal, under the seal of these Confederate States, to armed privateers of any nation. The commercial classes of England had, since the secession of South Carolina, manifested a strong sympathy for the rebellion, and he doubtless expected that the seas would soon swarm with predatory adventurers under shelter of the star

tion of the military frontier; but the chief element of uncertainty and delay was furnished by the peculiar political condition of the State of Kentucky, which of itself extends the whole distance from Virginia to Missouri. It cannot perhaps be affirmed with certainty that Governor Magoffin of Kentucky was a secession conspirator; but his own language leaves no doubt that in opinion and expectation he was a disunionist. He had remonstrated against the rash and separate movements of South Carolina and the Cotton States; but since their movement was made, he looked upon it as final and irrevocable, and committed himself unqualifiedly against coercing them back to obedience. More than this, he argued that Kentucky was no longer safe in the Union, and declared she will not and ought not to submit to the principles and policy avowed by the Republican party, but will resist, and resist to the death, if necessary. In this view, he recommended to the Legislature, which met in January
