correspondent of the Baltimore Sun gives the following intelligence:
It is confidently rumored that orders have been sent for the landing at Fort Pickens
of the two companies of artillery that were sent out in the United States
, under the orders of the late Administration, for the succor of that fort.
The order was suspended by President Buchanan
, and is now said to have been renewed.
The military status
will thus be changed on the part of the United States Government.
Whether the Government
of the Confederate States
will permit this, we are to see. It is not believed, however, that President Davis
will order an assault of the fort prior to a formal demand for its surrender, and this demand he will not, it is said, make immediately.
