days; the old rat-possessed, musty and dusty hulks that have lain in the Elizabeth river since — as long as the writer can recollect — with only one man aboard of each, to keep off the poor and illiterate rascals who coveted a little of the copper cankering upon their sides, have been cleaned and upon them guns have been mounted, ammunition stored away in their holds, and — it should be the "feather that breaks the camel's back"--the guns are brought to bear upon the peaceful farmers of Norfolk county, a portion of the sovereign people of the proud old Commonwealth of Virginia. I "fearfully " think that Virginia is degenerating; for, "in that elder day," when one of her sons spoke in these words: "Our chains are forged — their clankings may be heard upon the plains of Boston," Virginia could not have been awed into submission. Those guns are more powerful than the chains that rang in the fancied ears of Patrick Henry. The Commandant of the Yard caused all of the small arms of

A boat, carrying a lone star flag, with six men on board, a few days ago ran under the guns of Fort Pickens. No unfriendly notice was taken of it. It is also true that six soldiers landed near the fort and were arrested by Limpany, and has been paying its own expenses. The Governor wrote, them that there was no prospect of a fight, and that Fort Pickens would be given up. Thirty of the Lauderdale (Miss.)

iladelphia might be distinguished for their ability and enterprise, but they would belong to a country with hardly a greater future than Canada. Every natural advantage would be on the side of the slave States. Look at the map, and you will see what a narrow slip of country composes the free soil of the American federation. Only the sea-coast from the British frontier to the Delaware (a few hundred miles) belongs to it; all the rest, stretching far away down the Atlantic and along the Gulf of Mexico, is in the hands of the slave owners. The mouth of the Mississippi is theirs; the Missouri, and Arkansas, the great arteries of the extreme West, are theirs. Virginia pushes a spur of territory to within less than a hundred miles of Lake Erie, and thus divides the Atlantic free States from the West in a manner highly dangerous to their future union.--Indeed, it is doubtful whether the connection between New York and New England, on the one hand, and Illinois and the neighboring States
