nest of Tories in the Pan-Handle, but will be the most energetic means of cooling down Lincoln and his tools of anything that can be done whatever.--Your Convention has wisely provided that the soldiers on duty may vote wherever they are. Let every soldier vote — let every farmer vote, every mechanic, merchant, lawyer, doctor, every one, by all that is dear to freemen, vote yourselves out of the Union of the abolition cut-throats and robbers of the North.--Never let the sun of Thursday, May 23d, 1861, go down and find you the vassals of Lincoln, who has eternally disgraced his own degraded party and section. Old Virginia has never yet faltered. She has always been equal to any and every emergency. Let no small affair keep you away from the polls — let everything else be laid aside that one day. If any fighting has to be done on that day, tell the Palmetto boys to "step in," until you can cast your votes. Give the good cause 150,000 majority, never return to your homes until the go

I have it on better authority than you generally get, that old "Tureen" (Scott,) and Lincoln will, on Tuesday or Wednesday next, make an attempt on Harper's Ferry, Alexandria, Fredericksburg, Urbana, and Tappahannock on the Rappahannock, and at Norfolk, and on the York river, merely to divert voters from the polls. I hope, however, that every voter in the State may determine to go to the polls and vote, if he never gets back home alive. Let him go with his ticket in one hand and

From Charleston.[special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Charleston, May 16, 1861. Two vessels came into port this morning, one laden with molasses and sugar. The Niagara is not to be seen off the harbor; where gone, no one knows and nobody cares. On yesterday, several Baptist ministers of your State and city visited Fort Sumter, by special permit of Governor Pickens, who did me the special honor of a call at my private residence. Among them was your townsman, the Rev. James B. Taylor, D. D., "whose praise is in all the Churches," and who still retains much of his former appearance, though now a man advanced in life. Accompanying him was a son, Rev. George B. Taylor, a Baptist minister of no small repute, and a son-in-law, Rev. Mr. Prichard, of Wilmington, N. C. These gentlemen were returning from Savannah, where the denomination had been holding their biennial Convention, and in which convocation they adopted certain resolutions expressive of the feelings of th
