ts with you, gentlemen of the North, to determine the question, and there is no time for delay. I have given abundant proof that I do not sympathize with South Carolina in her rash and impetuous action. If she is determined to go let us do all that men can do to prevent any other State from following her pernicious example. his particular followers, but all of whom would be abandoned if such a policy were pursued; for I do not believe there is a majority in any one of the States (South Carolina excepted, and we may count her out for the present,) that would claim more as a condition of their adhesion to the Union than they would be fairly entitled to the citadel has already been surrendered; the right to prevent any one State from breaking up the entire Confederacy has been denied, and it is expected that South Carolina, profiting by this unparalleled treachery to the rest of the States, will seize upon Fort Moultrie, that has purposely been left in an almost deserted and hel
om Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter, which almost precipitated civil war at Charleston, it was on the faith of a distinct understanding that no reinforcements should be sent and no other evidence afforded by the Federal Government of hostility to South Carolina, that Mr. Thompson consented to remain in the Cabinet after the Secretary of War had resigned. "It is well known that the gentleman whom the President commissioned to administer ad interim the affairs of the War Department, although he willmore's Cabinet, has written a long letter in favor of immediate secession by separate State action, on the ground that the slave States could not probably agree on any plan of united separation, and also because the action already taken by South Carolina has determined the course of the whole South.

Alluding to the condition of South Carolina, he says there is no other alternative but to collect the revenues and protect the public property there. It is his duty to execute the laws of the nation — In this, our heaviest calamity, let a trial be made, before we plunge into the assumption that there is no alternative. Let us have reflection.--Would that South Carolina had reflected. He appeals to Congressmen to say, in their might, that the Union shall and must be preserved, and recommends them to devote themselves to es as reasons why he refused to send troops to Charleston harbor, that this would have furnished a pretext, if not provocation, for aggression, on the part of South Carolina, Referring to Major Anderson, he says that officer could not, before he left Fort Moultrie, have held the place more than forty-eight or sixty hours.

North has written his resignation, but holds it under consideration. He leaves for South Carolina to-day or tomorrow, to watch the course of events; and, being a native of that State, will never bear arms against her. The secession spirit, and the feeling of sympathy for South Carolina, is very faint in this city. The people hold meSouth Carolina, is very faint in this city. The people hold meetings and talk, but do nothing. The Argus, of this morning, recommends the erection of earth-works at different points along the river, for the defence of our city and harbor. Should the suggestion be acted on, Fort Norfolk will probably be armed, and the fort at Craney Island repaired. There is still a substantial brick block-house on this island, which, at a small expense, could be made habitable. The city has been very healthy this winter, the Health Officer reporting only twenty
g state of affairs in our country, the resolutions which were prepared by a committee and offered at a previous meeting were again presented by the chairman of the committee. Still, other amendments and a set of resolutions were offered, and some ten or a dozen speeches were made; but, without taking a vote upon any resolution, the meeting adjourned amidst the wildest excitement ever witnessed at any meeting of the citizens of this county. With cheers and huzzas, groans and hisses, for South Carolina, the Union and the Old Dominion, all mixed up in the most perfect confusion, accompanied with the tossing up of hats and the waving of handkerchiefs, no such scene ever disgraced any assemblage of Rockbridge people. No personal altercations occurred. On the contrary, good feeling, for the most part, seemed to prevail. But each man had his own way of "saving the Union," or dissolving it, (for there were open disunionists in the meeting,) and no compromise would be listened to. The meet

The people of South Carolina. The Republican press is constantly teeming with the most scandalls and misrepresentations of the people of South Carolina.

laws and the perpetuation of the Union. After the reading of the Message, Mr. Davis, of Miss., said the President had misrepresented the position of the South Carolina Commissioners, and then declined to receive a paper correctly defining their views. He endorsed the high standing of the Commissioners, and laid on the Clerkssage of the President having been read, Mr. Howard, of Michigan, introduced a resolution of inquiry as to any negotiations in relation to the transfer of the South Carolina forts; also, if any pledges had been given that they would not be reinforced; also, in relation to the South Carolina Custom-House, Post-Office, Arsenal, and South Carolina Custom-House, Post-Office, Arsenal, and Revenue Cutter, if they had been seized. Mr. Crawford, of Georgia, offered a substitute. Mr. Phelps, of Mo., opposed the resolution, as possessing no remedy for State affairs. The President had invited their action, to avert fraternal strife. Messrs. Florence, Hill, and Martin of Virginia, opposed the resolution —
From Washington. Washington, Jan. 9. --The War Department is in possession of information that the Governor of South Carolina has forbidden the United States Sub-Traasurer at Charleston from paying the drafts of the Paymaster in favor of Major Anderson and his command, and that the Sub-Treasurer has refused accordingly. Commander Maury says that the long passage of the U. S. sloop Levant does not, in his judgment, justify the supposition of her loss. He gives reasons for his belief. It is denied by gentlemen very intimately related to the Administration, that recruits to Fort Sumter were ordered without the previous sanction of the President. It is further asserted that the subject was discussed in the Cabinet, and the Acting Secretary of War, as well as some other members of the Cabinet, clearly understood that it was the wish of the President that recruits should at once be sent there.
