Fort Sumter. It appears that there is serious trouble at Fort Sumter, and that much of the military and naval movement now in rapid progress on the part of the Government here is destined for that quarter. An officer of the army stated to me this afternoon that the first collision would, in all probability, occur in Charleston harbor. The Government, he says, having decided some days ago to evacuate Fort Sumter, were about sending an order detailing how it should-be done, but General Beauregard, who is in command, in conjunction with Gov. Pickens, refused to accept their plan of evacuation. What the order or plan proposed by the Government here was is not fully known, but it is understood that they wanted to leave a small force to protect the property of the United States. This the Carolinians peremptorily refused to agree to. They demanded an unconditional surrender. These facts were laid before the President, who at once decided that unless they accepted the plan or orde

was a rush made to meet them, and there was barely time given them to halt, before they were surrounded and plied with all manner of questions. The crowd having satisfied themselves with looking at the cannon, and wondering what Forts Sumter or Pickens wanted with flying artillery, returned to their posts on the docks and vessels, and watched with the utmost patience the operations going on on board the vessel, expecting each moment to see the ponderous wheels begin to revolve; but they waitedrobability, occur in Charleston harbor.

There were some companies from the Second and Third regiments, in all about seven. Companies H, Captain Brooks, and C, Captain Allen, of the Second regiment light infantry, are also on board. A company of sappers and miners, from West Point, and a few persons belonging to the Ordnance Department, under the charge of Lieut. Balch, complete the whole. The total number of men is about five hundred, although many think that it is much larger. She may, however, receive a fresh supply before she leaves the city from either Fort Hamilton or Governor's Island, as she has accommodations for fully two thousand men. The embarkation Of the troops and armament was conducted in the usual military style. Some curiosity was manifested as to how so many horses (seventy-eight) were to be got on board, as the steamer wa

Wilmington, N. C., April 6. --The news has had but little effect, and caused no excitement here as yet. Charleston, April 6. --We are by no means disappointed at the news, and are now ready to receive our enemies, come as they may.--Affairs, however, are culminating. All points here have been strengthened, and we are now ready for any emergency. The ball will probably soon open. If the authorities do not soon act, the people may take the matter in their own hands. Montgomery, April 6. --The people here are pleased at the prospect of a brush, but are afraid President Lincoln will evade a conflict. The firing into the schooner at Charleston brightens all faces. New Orleans, April 6. --The news from Washington and New York produced an unwonted excitement. The report that war vessels are to visit the mouth of the Mississippi aroused the whole city.
