This anniversary of the battle of the Cow-pens finds our citizen soldiers in the field, called there to defend their homes and firesides, their wives and children, from the armed hostility of a corrupt and perverted Government. The usual holiday parade is wanting, the gay uniform has disappeared, and in its place our ear catches the now familiar tread of armed men--brave lads in grey"--who stand ready to breast the storm of vulgar tyranny which threatens the dear old Commonwealth of South Carolina. Victory perched upon the standards of their ancestors eighty years ago; the lesson of duty then taught is remembered, and the crimson flag which heralded the way to glory then, is ready again to be thrown to the breeze in the cause of constitutional liberty — equality. Gen. Henningsen. The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser, of the 14th, says: Gen. C. F. Henningsen, of Nicaragua notoriety, arrived in this city on Saturday night last, and will probably remain some days.--H
en and through the non-slaveholding States and Territories, constitute the basis of such an adjustment of the unhappy controversy which now divides the States of this Confederacy as would be accepted by the people of this Commonwealth. 6. Resolved, That Ex-President John Tyler be appointed by the concurrent vote of both Houses of the General Assembly, a Commissioner to the President of the United States, and Judge John Robertson be appointed in similar manner Commissioner to the State of South Carolina and the other States that have seceded or shall secede, with instructions respectfully to request the President of the United States and the authorities of such States to agree to abstain, pending the proceedings contemplated by the action of this General Assembly, from any and all acts calculated to produce a collision of arms between the States and the Government of the United States. 7. Resolved, That copies of the foregoing resolutions be forthwith telegraphed to the Presiden
South Carolina. Charleston, Jan. 19. --Lieut. Talbot, Col. Anderson's messenger from Washington, arrived here last night, with gloomy tidings, it is said. The Legislature was in secret session nearly the entire night on the subject. This morning a white flag came from Fort Sumter, the object of which, it is stated, is to demand a suspension of work on the fortifications in the harbor. Lieut. Davis, with four men, is now in the city. The soldiers are witnesses in a murder case, and Lieut. Davis is being entertained by his friends. He drinks to a peaceable settlement of the difficulties. Fort Sumter is allowed to procure fresh provisions from our market daily.
A Washington rumor. --There is a rumor in "high political circles," at Washington, that South Carolina intends storming Fort Sumter, and calculates upon a loss of many hundreds of lives.
rantee of her political and social safety. She takes the secession step at this time in obedience to what she considers her vita interest. Two nights ago, Fort Pickens, Fla., was in immediate danger of assault; but since, a dispatch, signed by numerous secessionists in Congress, has been sent thither, their friends urging them by all means to avoid a collision with the Federal forces. There seems to be no danger, therefore, of an immediate conflict in that quarter. Col. Hayne, of S. C., will remain in Washington ten days or two weeks longer. His visit has been productive of great good in the interest of peace. It is not apprehended that any attack will at present be made on Fort Sumter. The Alabama members of Congress await instructions from their State. Those from Georgia will remain until they receive an official copy of the Ordinance of Secession. Active measures are in progress to have the course of Virginia, in sending Commissioners to Washington on the 4
Ammunition for South Carolina. --We understand that five car loads of powder and two of cannon ball were dispatched from this city to Charleston, S. C., on Saturday, over the Petersburg Railroad.
The Irish and coercion. --The "Irish News," a very respectable organ of the Irish population in New York, says: "There is a talk of an army of 60,000 men, to be furnished by New York and others of the border free States, and commanded by Gen. Scott, for the purpose of putting down South Carolina and bringing the rest of the Southern States to order! God protect society from such a stroke of strategy. The united North could not put down the South. But they who would put down the South are only a fanatical fragment of the North; and it is the North itself which would probably rue the rising of such an armament. The lovers of a free fight all round will wish for such a state of things. But we suspect they will not see it. Gen. Scott is an impulsive man; but he is not crazy. He would not dare to advise such an outburst in the country, and could no more control it than a child."
rs of Charleston;" says it is no use to mince matters, that a little bloodshed now will save more hereafter, and fairly raves over the arrest of Merriman, the South Carolina Collector who has been arrested for treason, exclaiming: "Let not the madmen go too far. For every hair of his head an account must be rendered. Some have spoken of retaliation, by seizing the persons of South Carolina gentlemen. This is beneath the dignity of the Executive. But an immediate demand should be made by the Government for his safe return and the demand enforced." The vile suggestion in the lines we have italicised will strike the reader. Merriman is a citizen of South CSouth Carolina--to whom his allegiance is due — and who, by due legal process, has been arrested for treason.-- The World covertly recommends (though it hypothetically pretends to disclaim it,) that the Executive of the United States should make reprisals by seizing innocent Carolina gentlemen and holding them as hostages for Merriman's
e glad to see that the Dispatch denies a want of loyalty to the State west of the Blue Ridge. Public sentiment in this county has changed much in the last few weeks. We have some violent secessionists, who land the brave and manly course of South Carolina. Still, the majority say we must now secede, though we abhor the idea of following South Carolina. Some of the leaders who followed Governor Letcher's theory now yield a mournful acquiescence, adding that it galls them to be drawn into civiSouth Carolina. Some of the leaders who followed Governor Letcher's theory now yield a mournful acquiescence, adding that it galls them to be drawn into civil war by a ranting little State. But the secessionists are fast making converts. In case of civil war I have no doubt that Greenbrier will furnish some as brave and loyal troops as ever marched to repel an invader. There are several volunteer companies in the county. Of the three newspapers in Lewisburg, one urges secession, a second opposes coercion, and the third deprecates civil war; or, rather, the two last are Whig, waiting for the interposition of Providence to avert the impending
rday, passed a bill authorizing the County Courts, &c., to arm the Militia and provide means therefore. The report of the Joint Committee on Federal Relations was amended and agreed to. Ex-President Tyler, Hon. Wm. C. Rives, Judge J. W. Brockenbrough, Hons. Geo. W. Summers and J. A. Seddon, were appointed Commissioners to visit Washington to confer with others from sister States. Ex-President Tyler was appointed a Commissioner to the President, and Judge John Robertson Commissioner to South Carolina, to request them to abstain, during the pendency of negotiations, from all acts calculated to produce a collision. Bills were reported authorizing the Northwestern Bank of Virginia to establish an agency in Richmond, and the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad Company to construct a branch and increase its capital stock; also, a bill to provide for taking the sense of the people of Henrico upon giving the County Court authority to raise money for arming the county. A resolution was introdu
