them coming, and I bid them all God speed. [Cheers.] Again, gentlemen, thanking you for your address, I bid you good night. Mr. Lincoln at Steubenville, Ohio — he Makes Another Speech, and says the majority must rule. Pittsburg, Feb. 14.--The President elect and party left Columbus at 8 o'clock this morning. At Steubenville, Ohio, a demonstration took place on his arrival, some five thousand people being present at the depot to receive him. A salute was fired and Mr. Lincoln wauld rule, and if he adopted a wrong policy, the opportunity to condemn him would occur in four years. Then I can be turned out, and a better man, with better views, be put in my place. Arrival at Pittsburg — he Speaks Again. Pittsburg, Feb. 14.--The President elect reached Allegany at 8 o'clock this evening, and he and his party immediately proceeded to the Monongahela House, in this city. Shortly afterward he was called out, and addressed the immense crowd in substance as follows:

yesterday, by seizing a lot of cartridges destined for Charleston, S. C.--Sergeant Geist, it appears, received information that an attempt would be made to ship 50,000 cartridges on board the Huntsville, and made extensive preparations to seize the property as soon as it arrived on the pier. Upon investigation, however, the number of the cartridges dwindled down to something less than 5,000. The boxes containing the ammunition in question were marked S. H. on one side, and on the other H. A. Atcher, Charleston, S. C. It was the intention of the shippers to have them reshaped to Savannah, but whether by railroad or steamboat, does not appear.

aring torches, and called upon the President elect. Mr. Lincoln was escorted to the balcony, and was greeted on behalf of the working men by Mr. Fred. Oberkleine, who formally presented a brief address. Mr. Lincoln responded as follows: Mr. Chairman--I thank you and those you represent, for the compliment paid me by the tender of this address. In so far as there is an allusion to our present national difficulties, and the suggestion of the views of the gentlemen who present this address, see the last development of public opinion before I give my views, or express myself at the time of the inauguration. [Cheers.] I hope at that time to be false to nothing you have been taught to expect of me. [Cheers.] I agree with you, Mr. Chairman, and with the address of your constituents, in the declaration that working men are the basis of all governments. That remark is due to them more than to any other class, for the reason that there are more of them than of any other class. An
one of the officers in command of Fort Pickens, arrived here this evening with dispatches from Lieut. Slemmer and the commander of vessels off Pensacola to the government. He left Pensacola on Saturday evening, having received a passport from Major Chase, who is in command of the Florida troops. He says the following vessels are off the harbor: The Brooklyn, Sabine, St. Louis, Macedonian and Wyandotte. The Brooklyn did not land her supplies for Fort Pickens, Lieut. Slemmer having notified them that he had ample supplies for three months. There are twelve hundred troops at Pensacola, and they are threatening every hour to make an attack on Fort Pickens. It is all that Major Chase and others in command can do to restrain them. Lieut. Gilman says he would not be surprised if an attack was made at any moment, and it is very probable, owing to the limited number in the fort, that they would take it before the Brooklyn could throw her troops into the fort. If they take it at all,
se crowd in substance as follows: He said he would not give them a speech, as he thought it more rare, if not more wise, for a public man to keep quiet. He expressed his gratification and surprise at so great an assemblage and such boundless enthusiasm, manifested under such untoward circumstances, to greet so unworthy an individual as himself. It was, undoubtedly, to be attributed to the position to which, more by accident than by merit, he had attained. He remarked further that if all these energetic, whole-souled people before him were for the preservation of the Union, he did not see how it could be in much danger. [Cheering and cries of "Union and no compromise."] He had adopted the plan of holding his tongue for the most part during the Presidential canvass and since the election, and he had perhaps better now hold his tongue. [Cries of "Go on."] I will speak again in the morning. Mr. Lincoln and party will leave at 11 o'clock in the morning for Cleveland.
e to swear fealty to the new Government. The day was a deliciously balmy one, and the ladies turned out in larger numbers than I have ever seen them. After the preliminary business of opening the session had been transacted, the President, Mr. Cobb, rose and announced that it was in order to administer the oath pledging support to the "Constitution for the Provisional Government of the Confederate States." Hon. R. Walker, one of the Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of Alabama, asche Scriptures. The President remained standing at the desk. Judge Walker said: "You do solemnly swear that you will support the Constitution for the Provisional Government of the Confederate States of America, so help you God?" Mr. Cobb answered, "I do," and reverentially kissed the book, which he retained in his hand. The delegates from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina were then summoned, each representative in turn, to the President, an
ch impracticable, we should cease to feel for each other the respect and regard with which purity of manners, high principle and a manly devotion to truth never fall to inspire generous minds. Our relations to each other hereafter will be the relations we both now hold to the men of our Mother Church of England. Seizure of Ammunition for Charleston. The Metropolitan Police distinguished themselves again, yesterday, by seizing a lot of cartridges destined for Charleston, S. C.--Sergeant Geist, it appears, received information that an attempt would be made to ship 50,000 cartridges on board the Huntsville, and made extensive preparations to seize the property as soon as it arrived on the pier.
