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. 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 reshap

The National Crisis. From Fort Pickens--The Laws of the Southern Confederacy--Another Church Division --Letter from Bishop Hopkins, &c., &c. from Fort Pickens. A dispatch from Washington says: Lieut. Gilman, 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 woul

He left Pensacola on Saturday evening, having received 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 tctation of a victory so long cherished by the boys, will be disappointed. Fort Pickens is to be left in the hands of Lieut. Slemmer and his men.--There is no doubt but he means to fight, and is constantly making preparations to give his assailants ahrowing up batteries upon the point of Santa Rosa's Island, immediately opposite those we have erected below Barrancas. Slemmer has also placed a large mortar upon each bastion of the fort. Upon both sides the labors upon batteries and guns contin

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

It would assuredly be far mor

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.

Another Church Division. In Louisiana the Protestant Episcopal Church secedes with the State. A pastoral letter from Bishop Polk, of that diocese, contains this passage: Our separation from our brethren of the "Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States" has been effected, because we must follow our nationality. Not because there has been any difference of opinion as to Christian doctrine or Catholic usage. Upon these points we are still one. With us it is a separation, not division — certainly not alienation. And there is no reason why, if we should find the union of our diocese under our national C
