Anderson--a bearer of dispatches sent to Washington, &c., &c. Charleston, January 9 --Our citiion he bore from Maj. Anderson: Letter from Major Anderson to GovernorPickens. To His Excellency the Governor of South Carolina:Sir: Two of your batteries fired this morning on an unarmed vessel, bearing, the flag of my Government. Not being notified that war has been declared by South Carolina against the United States, I cannot but think that this hostile act was committed without your sanction or authority. Under that hope, I refrained from opening fire on your batteries. I have Reply of Gov. Pickens. "Gov. Pickens sent a letter to Major Anderson, in reply. After stating the position South Carolina holds to the Federal Union, and that any attempt to send U. S. troops to Charleston harbor, to reinforce the forts, w<

The General Assembly of Virginia asks from the Governor and authorities of the State of South Carolina, in view of the imminent danger of civil war, all assurance of the absolute preservation of the status quo for the present, except to repel hostile aggrest important and momentous propositions that could be precipitated on the attention of the House. The United States had no right to maintain an armed force in South Carolina, or any of the other States. --The language of the propositions is involved and obscure, and might be construed to mean more than appears at first blush.

On the other hand, the Constitution, of this morning, affirms that the "Star of the West" did go to Charleston, and that Secretary Thompson resigned because this was done in defiance of the plighted word of the Administration, and without his knowledge. Here is the third perjury of Buchanan.--First, his honor was pledged to the members of South Carolina and to Gov. Floyd; second, to Mr. Boteler in regard to Harper's Ferry; third, to Secretary Thompson. And General Scott is a party to this violation of pledges.
