for preaching secession, on the Avenue, and endeavoring to inflame the minds of the military against the Government. He was taken to the Central guard house where he awaits orders from the military authorities. A telegraphic dispatch from New York, May 11th, says: Daniel E. Sickles to-day telegraphed the Secretary of War, tendering the services of a brigade which he has raised, composed of New Yorkers and Philadelphians. The brigade consists of four regiments, including Col. F. P. Montgomery's regiment, of Philadelphia. The men will be equipped as regulars by the city of New York, and will take with them twelve steel rifled cannon, besides a battery of living artillery. Sickles is now acting as Brigadier General, and has his quarters at the City Hall. The Montgomery Advertiser gives the following cheering news from Alabama: About one hundred and thirty-five companies have offered their services to the Governor of this State since he issued his first proclama

the event. To our limited power of judgment it appears, we confess, to complete the character of Mr. Lincoln's policy as including every known kind of blunder. Having first neglected to fight until the chance of doing so with success had passed away, he has now undertaken and provoked a conflict under circumstances which ensured his being humiliated and beaten, without the possibility of striking an effective blow in return. Morally, he is to the full as responsible as the Government of Montgomery for transferring the matters in dispute between them from the arbitrament of reason to that of arms, for his formal intimation to them that he was about to resort to force was a challenge that they could not be expected to disregard. If he meant what he said, it was the virtual commencement of war; if he did not, it was still more culpable as idle menace. We say nothing in justification of the revolt of the seceding States; we only remark that Mr. Lincoln seems to us to have thrown away,
privateers are fitting out at various points — all to be well armed and manned. Some are already said to be cruising along the Atlantic coast. In three weeks from this time our privateersmen will infest almost every sea, and the merchant ships that sails under the degraded "Stars and Stripes" will be made to strike her Black Republican colors, and surrender her treasures to the brave militia of the ocean. A number of troops are said to be on their way to this place, whose ultimate destination will be Pensacola. Also, that a Rifle Regiment composed of "crack men" is now organizing to go to Virginia. Among the distinguished visitors in Montgomery at the present time is Mr. Russell, the far-famed correspondent of the London Times. Gen. Beauregard has been here for some days, but left, I learn, this morning for Charleston. Mrs. Davis holds frequent levees at the White House, from the hours of one to three. They are fashionably and numerously attended. Montgomery.

From Montgomery. Montgomery, May 11.--The question of the removal of the Provisional seat of Government from this city to Richmond will be decided to-day. It will probably be defeated. It is expected, however, that President Davis will go to Virginia, and head the Army on the border. Secretary Memminger, of the Treasury, has sent in a report of a scheme for raising the funds necessary for the prosecution of the war. This and the tariff are the only questions now remaining for consideration of Congress, which will probably adjourn about the 23d inst., to meet again in the middle of July, unless sooner called together by the President. In regard to funds for carrying on the war, fifty millions will be raised, probably one-half by Treasury notes, one-fourth by customs, and one-fourth by direct taxation. Volunteers will not be received for a less term than three years, or during the war. Field and staff officers will be appointed by the President. In local emergenci
