From Charleston. [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Charleston, April 8, 1861. No mistake now about supplies being o off from Major Anderson. He is to let Gen. Beauregard hear from him to-day what will be his course. I predict that the ultimatum will be, that all intercourse between the city and the batteries around the harbor will be prevented by Anderson, if he can, which will be an open declaration of war on the part of the Lincoln Government. I telegraphed you this morning to that effect, and stated that Lieut. Talbot, who left here for Washington a week ago, for the purpose, as he stated, of being promoted, is now on his way back with dispatches for Major Anderson. Gen. Beauregard has now determined that he shall not return to the fort, unless he shows to him the order, from Lincoln's Government, that Sumter is to be immediately evacuated. By that time we expect the fleet, now sailed and sailing to be hovering over our shores, when we will give them the recept
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.raising a Secession flag — Political Affairs. Fincastle, Va., April 8, 1861. Some eight or ten days past we raised a secession pole and flag in our usually quiet town. Hundreds witnessed the raising, and, as it was ascending the beautiful pole, (81 feet height,) our excellent Brass Band gave us that soul-stirring air, "Dixie." Secession speeches were then made by some of our citizens, and the day passed off quietly. A great change — I judge from many that I have conversed with — has come over the minds of the people in this section, since things have taken the course they have. The people are beginning to arouse themselves, seeing the danger to which they are subject by waiting. They are getting impatient — the suspense the State Convention is causing cannot be longer submitted to, and it is denounced as the greatest "humbug" affair that ever assembled in your city, as a deliberative body, called together by the people to vindicate

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. The Policy of the Administration is War--Convention of Southern Rights Men at Williamsburg — Secession Meeting, Secession Flag, Secession Speeches, Secession Ladies, and Secession Enthusiasm — Appointments to Office by Lincoln, &c., &c. Hampton, Va., April 8th, 1861. The Administration has finally defined its policy; not publicly, but stealthily--just Seward's fashion. I am inclined to the opinion that the Hon. J. S. Millson will soon find his error in this, as his constituents have found theirs in other instances; but they will correct theirs at the polls. He said, in Petersburg, "Lincoln is for peace." What does he think now? Probably the blockading of ports, collecting of revenue, and reinforcing Southern forts, in the opinion of the honorable gentleman, are peace measures? Well, we shall soon learn more definitely what the Washington Government really intends to do. A Convention of Southern Rights men has been call

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. Court Day — Political Discussion — New Candidates--Post-Office--Southern Flag — Dispatch — Railroad News, &c. Wytheville, Va., April 8th, 1861. This being Court-day, our town presents a most animated appearance, notwithstanding it has been raining the last twenty-four hours, which prevents many of our citizens from attending. The Court was occupied most of the day with civil business, granting licenses, &c.--In the afternoon it was adjourned, in order to give the honorable Messrs. Martin and McMullan an opportunity of presenting their views on the political topics of the ay — both being Congressional aspirants for this District. Mr. Martin led off in a speech of an hour's length, in which he tried to explain the position he occupied, at present, as an Union man, which surprised his constituents here not a little, from the fact of his having signed a card, in connection with a majority of his colleagues, at Washing
y Before — Description of Fort Sumpter--Major Anderson, &c. The war has commenced. Yesterday morning, at 4½ o'clock, the batteries of the Confederate troops in Charleston harbor opened fire on Fort Sumter. Ex-President Tyler yesterday afternoon received by telegraph from John Tyler, Jr., at Montgomery, Ala., the following copy of the official correspondence which took place before the bombardment commenced: [no. 1.]Gen. Beauregard's Dispatch to the Secretary of War. Charleston April 8, 1861. To L. P. Walker Dear Sir --An authorized messenger from Lincoln has just informed Gov. Pickens and myself that provisions will be sent to Fort Sumter, "peaceably if they can, forcibly if they must." G. T. Beauregard. [no. 2.]reply of the Secretary of War to Gen. Beauregard. Montgomery April 10, 1861. To Gen.Beauregard, Charleston: If you have no doubt of the authorized character of the agent who communicated to you the intention of the Washington Government to suppl
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the voice of old Buckingham. New Store, 8th April, 1861. I have great pleasure in informing you that the secession feeling is gaining ground rapidly in this county, (Buckingham.) On the 1st April, a flag of three stripes and seven stars "and a hall" was raised in Curdsville. The half star was intended to represent Virginia. Last Saturday quite a large number of people collected at this village and drew up a similar one on a pole a hundred feet high, amidst loud and prolonged cheers. Old gray-headed men, Whigs and Democrats, took part in the proceedings. A few months since there were not more than half a dozen secessionists in the county. Now there are hardly more than that number for Union--in other words, for submitting to be ruled by the Republican party.
Runaway. --Sam, one of the convict slaves, employed in the erection of fortifications on Marion Hill, near Richmond, made his escape from the custody of the guards on Thursday evening, the 6th June, 1861, about sundown. He was received at the Penitentiary on the 8th day of April, 1861, from the county of Notteway, by the Court of which he was condemned to sale and transportation for an assault with intent to maim, &c. Said boy was at the time of his conviction the property of Joseph A. Bass, of said county of Nottoway; is 24 years of age, Dark color and about five feet high. The usual reward will be given for his apprehension and delivery at the Penitentiary. je 8--1t John C. Pryde.
lves before him, that he has cheerfully submitted this paper to the President, who coincides generally in the views it expresses, and sanctions the Secretary's decision declining official intercourse with Messrs. Forsyth and Crawford. April 8, 1861. The foregoing memorandum was filed in this department on the 15th of March last. A delivery of the same, however, to Messrs. Forsyth and Crawford was delayed, as was understood, with their consent. They have now, through their Secretaon of the subject. The Secretary of State therefore directs that a duly verified copy of the paper be now delivered. A true copy of the original, delivered to me by Mr. F. W. Seward, Assistant Secretary of State of the United States, on April 8, 1861, at 2.15 P. M., in blank envelope. Altest, J. T. Pickett, Secretary to the Commissioners.
