Wait! wait!! wait!!! We have been told to wait for the elections in the Northern States, which were to show the "Immense Reaction" since Lincoln's election. Well, we have waited, and what is the result? The election of the whole Black Republican ticket in New Hampshire, by the usual majority, and the elevation of David Wilmot to the Senate of the United States, by an overwhelming majority of the Pennsylvania Legislature, are unquestionable indications of their speedy destruction.--Verily, the Keystone State in particular, says the Petersburg Express, has vindicated her title to Southern admiration and confidence by the choice she has just made of Cameron's successor. A few more such conservative demonstrations will kill off the Border States' Convention, and win back the "Confederate" concern to the Union. We propose that the Virginia Convention dispatch forthwith a Commissioner to Harrisburg to congratulate the Legislature there, in the name of our Commonwealth, for the
Visit to President Davis. --The Alabama State Convention called on President Davis on the 11th inst., to pay their respects. A letter says: The President made a short, stirring speech, which was warmly applauded. He said that it was probable that the "peace propositions" being concocted by Lincoln and Seward at Washington were only intended to quiet the Southern people and allay all apprehensions, while our enemies would be sowing the seeds of dissension, to divide and distract us, so that we might fall an easy prey and be readily overrun by the Northern horde, so that we would be subjugated, or be compelled to witness the degrading spectacle of a reconstruction of the old Union, which could only be done on terms of inequality to the South.-- He believed and trusted that the South was united in defence of her rights, and said "woe be to the Philip who would sow dissensions in Greece."

Virginia --may prefer to stand stock still and see the Southern States devastated, which, when done, will be her death knell also. A very intelligent gentleman, in a small social party to-night, made this prediction — that Sumter would be evacuated, our Commissioners would be sent home, a battle will be begun at Fort Pickens in a few days, or weeks at most, Lincoln's Cabinet would be blown up in two monts, and that we should have no other State in the Southern Confederacy. We shall see. You will see in the Mercury of to-day, a very correct plan of Charleston harbor. If you will take your stand in the middle of the point of the city, with your face towards Fort Sumter, you will have the harbor laid out before you. You will see Morris' Island, with its point nearest to Sumter, called Cumming's Point. On that Point there are three batteries of th
