, with a fervency that perhaps they had never before experienced, Major Anderson drew the "Star Spangled Banner" up to the top of the staff, the band broke out with the national air of "Hail Columbia," and loud cheers, repeated again and again, were given by the officers, soldiers and workmen. Movement of U. S. Troops. A detachment of United States Dragoons, unmounted, reached here yesterday afternoon, at one o'clock, per Northern Central Railway, for the U. S. Cavalry Barracks, Carlisle, Pa., on route for Harper's Ferry, where they will remain subject to the orders of the Secretary of War. They numbered 64 men, including rank and file, and notwithstanding they are nearly all recruits, yet there are a number of experienced military men amongst them.--Lieut. Jones was in command, with Orderly Sergeant Wm. Kelly, and Sergeants McGee and O'Brien. They were accompanied by several buglers, but marched through the streets without music, and bore the impress of real soldiers. Bla

be. If the Confederacy is broken up, the Government is dissolved, and it behooves every distinct community as well as every individual to take care of themselves. When disunion has become a fixed and certain fact, why may not New York disrupt the bands which bind her to a venal and corrupt master — to a people and a party that have plundered her revenues, attempted to ruin her commerce, taken away the power of self government, and destroyed the Confederacy of which she was the proud Empire City? Amid the gloom which the present and prospective condition must cast over the country, New York, as a free city, may shed the only light and hope for a future reconstruction of our once blessed Confederacy. Yet I am not prepared to recommend the violence implied in these views. In stating this argument in favor of freedom, "peaceably if we can, forcibly if we must," let me not be misunderstood. The redress can be found only in appeals to the magnanimity of the people of the whole

, as the guidon for a new alignment of patriotism. The urn which bore the ashes of Virginia recalled the senses of her father — the torn banners of our republic may yet be a sufficient sign to the American people to wake them from madness, and to restore them to order and to virtue. War news from Charleston. The Charleston Mercury of Monday furnishes the following items of military news there: Yesterday afternoon, when copies of our special dispatches from Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and Washington, reached Fort Moultrie, the glad tidings they contained were greeted by the garrison with buzzes that made the welkin ring. We fancy that the benighted folks in Fort Sumter were rather puzzled to know what their Palmetto neighbors were cheering at. The Surgeon-General returns his grateful thanks to the ladies of Charleston for the continued supplies they are daily sending to his department. To the ladies of Columbia he also tenders his best thanks for severa

f public affairs. And, no doubt can be said in favor of the justice and policy of a separation. It may be said that secession or revolution in any of the United States would be a subversion of all Federal authority, and, so far as the Central Government is concerned, the resolving of the community into its original elements —ably do the same. Then it may be said, why should not New York City, instead of supporting, by her contributions in revenue, two-thirds the expense of the United States, become also equally independent? As a free city, with but a nominal duty on imports, her local government could be supported without taxation upon her peoplef about one thousand five hundred, she has this day on duty, and waiting orders, not less than one thousand men. What district will beat her. Hoisting the United States flag at FortSumter. One of the men who recently returned from Fort Sumter details an incident that took place there on Major Anderson taking possession. I
The National crisis. Mayor Wood's Recommendation--Senator Benjamin's late speech — War news from Charleston--Hon. Humphrey Marshall--movement of U. S. Troops--volunteering in South Carolina, &c., &c. the Republican papers are attempting to impugn the commercial honesty of the South. The figures, however, lay teal of the laws to which I have referred, and a consequent restoration of our corporate rights. Fernando Wood, Mayor. January 6, 1861. The speech of Senator Benjamin. A Washington letter to the Philadelphia Bulletin, describing the manner of Senator Benjamin, in delivering his great speech, last week, says: He sSenator Benjamin, in delivering his great speech, last week, says: He summed up his argument very calmly, read from a written paper, in a measured, legal tone, the causes of differences, and then concluded. This conclusion fell like a telling shot. He spoke coolly of the approaching dissolution of the Union, and the contest that might ensue. He enumerated the horrors of civil war; alluded to the p
ability of the South not being able to defend herself. It was all repeated over as calmly as had been his authorities. He stood in a simple position, between two desks, one foot crossed over the other: no attitude, no gesture. As he reached the close, he had one hand in his pocket, the other negligently toying with a vest chain. He balanced his head a little to and fro, in a true professional manner. Only his black eyes showed the emotion he must have felt. They were elongated, as Rachel's sometimes became, when at her stillest, most concentrated points of acting — the quiet curse in Camille for example — scintillating with light; a faint smile, just a little scornful as he said: "You may set our cities in flames, raising against us not only our own property, but, as Great Britain did in the Revolution, turn loose on our frontiers the savage; but there is one thing you will not do"--here he elevated his eye-brows and said quietly. "you will never subjugate us." H

George Toppan, Jr., a merchant of Boston, died on Sunday morning last, of hydrophobia. The Traveller gives the following account of the case: About three months ago, he was in at the office of Whittier's wharf, when he was bitten by a pet dog — quite a small one. The dog was on the top of a safe, close to the desk, and one of Mr. Whittier's children had been caressing it but a moment before. While conversing with his friend, in reference to a paper laying on his desk, Mr. Toppan laid his hand on the safe or table and leaned over to look closer at the paper, when the little animal sprang up suddenly and bit him in the upper lip. Two physicians were consulted at the time, and though only an impression had been made on the outer skin, yet an examination revealed a puncture from the dog's tooth in the inner surface of the lip

y for its greatest efficiency. Horrible death from hydrophobia. George Toppan, Jr., a merchant of Boston, died on Sunday morning last, of hydrophobia. The While conversing with his friend, in reference to a paper laying on his desk, Mr. Toppan laid his hand on the safe or table and leaned over to look closer at the paped being troublesome and noisy, was eventually killed. On Thursday last, Mr. Toppan felt unwell in the morning. The feeling rather increased towards night, but Mr. Toppan gave no serious thought to it. Of all things he had no suspicion that he was to be the victim of hydrophobia. He slept that night pretty much as usual. Ohe dropped down in a spasm. His alarmed wife called for help, and the moment Mr. Toppan slightly revived, he exclaimed, in a despairing tone. "I am a gone man." The sult. During Friday night, at intervals, it required several men to hold Mr. Toppan during the spasms, and in the morning it was found necessary to send to the p
he men before him to respond to the call of the Governor. At the close of his remarks he claimed the privilege of being enrolled as the first volunteer. He was followed by Col. Lorick, Maj. Wood and Adjutant Peck, who also enrolled their names. The order was given for volunteers to march four paces to the front, and was responded to most handsomely. Capt. Casson promptly tendered his command of 120 men to the Colonel, and was accepted as the company from the Volunteer Battalion. Lieut. Brennan, commanding the Emmet Guards, whose whole command had also marched to the front, in some appropriate remarks, tendered his corps. The Richland Guards, Capt. E. F. Bookter, numbering 100 rifles, also tendered his company. Thus there were more companies than could be accepted from the Volunteer Battalion. When it is remembered that this battalion has already two companies — over 200 men — in Charleston, it must be taken as the strongest evidence that the officers and men composing it ar

The reported sailing of the Star of theWest with troops. The N. Y. Express, alluding to the report that the Star of the West from that port Sunday took 200 U. S. troops for Charleston, says: Our reporter proceeded to the office of the California Steamship Company, and having seen Mr. M. O. Roberts, the owner of the Star of the West, inquired of him if that steamer had been chartered by the Government, and had taken troops or marines on board for Charleston. He replied that the vessel had not been chartered by the Government, and that he knew of no troops having been taken on board. On our reporter questioning the gentleman if the passages of troops might not have been purchased privately, he declined to reply, stating that he did not inquire into the private business of the ed
