It is said that merchants and other men of property in South Carolina, are compelled by threats of personal violence, to become subscribers to the State loan. It is also reported, and there is no reason to doubt the truth of the report, that a tax has been privately levied on slaveholders, of $16 per head for each slave owned by them — a tax so onerous that, in some cases, the slaves will be confiscated and sold in order to meet it. This is a forced loan as thoroughly as was ever any loan during the French Revolution, or during the chronic revolutions of Mexico. The secession movement is in the hands of the mob; and. the planters, merchants, and other men of substance, are powerless against them.--Cor. Albany Evening Journal, Dec. 28.
New York, April 3.--It is reported from New-Orleans that the Mexican General Ampudia was marching to invade Texas with 3,000 men, and that he had declared the State to belong to Mexico by right, and as it was no longer defended by the Union, a good opportunity was offered to Mexico to reassert her authority.--N. Y. Tribune.

d and bayonet, to the results of the ballot box, shall prevail here in this country of ours, the history of the United States is already written in the history of Mexico. It is a curious fact, a startling fact, and one that no American citizen should ever misapprehend — that from the day that Mexico separated from Spain, down to Mexico separated from Spain, down to this hour, no President of hers elected by the people has ever been inaugurated and served his term of office. In every single case, from 1820 down to 1861, either the defeated candidate has seized possession of the office by military force, or has turned out the successful man before his term expired. What is more significant? Mexico is now a bye-word for every man to scoff at. No man would deem himself treated as a gentleman, who was represented as a Mexican. Why? Because he cannot maintain his government founded upon the great principles of self-government and constitutional liberty — because he won't abide by the ballot-box — because he is not will<
Mrs. Major Anderson being desirous to visit her husband in Fort Sumter, Peter Hart, an officer of the Twentieth Ward, N. Y. City, was deputed to escort her to Charleston. Once inside the fort, Mr. Hart who had served under Major Anderson through the Mexican war, resolved to remain by his old commander, and aid in defending the fort. This he did, and in doing so, proved himself to be a gallant and intrepid soldier. After the stars and stripes had been shot down by the guns of the rebel forces, Hart seized the national colors, which he had so heroically defended in Mexico, and nailing the flag to a pole, raised it to its former position with his own hand, amid the cheers of Major Anderson and his soldiers.--N. Y. Tribune, April 20.
Pensacola, April 26.--Soldiers still arrive by every train. Three companies from Louisiana arrived to-day, also a hundred water soldiers (marines) from New Orleans. Gen. Bragg has now under his command about 8,000 troops — a larger number, I believe, than Gen. Scott commanded in the valley of Mexico. They are all in fine health, and anxious for the hour that decides the destiny of self and country. The crisis approaches nearer and nearer. Another day of soldier toil has added to the great preparation. The commander of Fort Pickens is unceasing in his military labors. Like Bragg's, his men work day and night. They have thrown up a battery out-side, but near the walls, of heavy guns, obtained from their ships, while on the ramparts they are piling bag upon bag of sand to protect their guns and men. And all this visible to the naked eye — even their muskets, stacked on the beach. The Governor has accepted the tender of the two military companies of Pensacola, as well as t
en, women, and children, the upper ten and the b'hoys, assembled in one dense and shouting multitude, to see an ugly, vulgar, money-loving Swedish opera woman land from a steamboat, to sing to them to the tune of half a million of dollars; but three months later she walked and travelled with as little notice as any other strong-minded woman and unprotected female. As with these trifles, so with mania of a character more serious. The North blazed with rage for war with England in 1812, with Mexico in 1846, and after a few weeks no more soldiers could be gotten out of it for either. The tremendous outburst of ferocity that we witness in the Northern States, is simply the repetition of one of the most common traits of their national character. It is the fashion of the day, the humbug of the hour, and it will cease as suddenly as it has commenced. Like straw on fire, the periodical sensations of the North make a great flame, but to sink to the ashes and the dust of indifference as swi
