Prospectus of the National Republican.
Believing that the timo has arrived when the
great Republican pari of the United States ought
to be fairly represented In the d uly press of the
National Metropolis, we have eui)urkd Iu the
enterprise of supplying the clilzer.j of the District
of Columbia will, n dally publication, under the
title of the " Natioval Himblioaii."
Iu Its political department, this journal will
advocate and defend the prlnelples or the Repub
lican party, and endeavor to disabuse the public
mind ot groundless prejudices which have been
engendered against it, by the false accusations
ot Its enemies. Having the utmost confidence
that the administration of Mr. Lincoln will bo
such as to merit our approbation, we expect to
yield it a cordial, but not a servile support. In
the great issue that is likely to be made with bis
administration, by the enemies of the Republican
party, the people or Washington anl the District
of Columbia Lave more at stake tban the peopl
of any other portion of our common country. We
believe that to support Mr. Lincoln's administra
tion will be synonvmous with maintaining the in
tegrity of the Federal Union, against the machin
ations of those who would rend It ai under. No
one can doubt upon which side of this Issue the
people of Washington will be found, when they
come to realize that It Is fairly forced upon them.
We feel confident, therefore, that In yielding to
the administration of Mr. Lincoln n cordial sup
port, we shall have the sympathy of an Immense
majority of the people of this District and vicin
ity. It, Is not our design, however, to make the
National Republican a mere political paper. We
Intend, that as a medium of general and local
news, It shall not be inferior to any other journal
published in this city. We shall pay particular
attention, to questions of local policy, and advo
cate such relornis as we may deem essential to
the prosperity of the city, and to the advance
ment ot the moral and material welfare of its
We deem it unnecessary, however, to multi
ply promises, as the paper will Immediately make
Its appearance, and will then speak for Itself.

it is not definitely known whether Major An.

he is said to be highly incensed against the
United States officers for not coming to his
assistance during the fire, in response to fre
quent signals of distress.
The Isabel was furnished at his own request.
It is reported here that Major Anderson sent
in his resignation, to take effect on the inaugu
ration of the Lincoln Government, but no no
tice was taken of it.
The fort is burned into a mere shell ; not a
particle ot wood work c 11 bu found. The guus
ou one side of tho parapet are entirely dis
mounted, others split, while the gun-carriages
arc knocked into splinters.
Major Anderson says, the occurring of the
firintr surprised him. and that, if he had had
two hundred more man, 0110 half would have
been killed for want of suitable protection.
When Col. Cheanut, aid of Gen. Beaure
gard, went to offer assistance alter the fire, he
says the fort was like an oven, and he could

Tho Virginia Convention.
Richmond. April 15. lhe commissioners
presented Mr. Lincoln's reply, without com
ment. A resolution was adopted to suspend the ex
ecution of the order of the day.
A resolution was offered, to go into secret
session to consider tho report ot the commis
sioners. A debate followed, tho proclamation consti
tuting the principal theme. Messrs. Scott and
Preston (Unionists) declared that if the Presi
dent meant subjugation of the South, Virginia
had but one courso to pursue.
Difference of opinion exists as to whether it
will be best to secede immediately, or await
the co-operation of the border States, and it is
believed the alternative propositions will be
submitted to the people.
Some delegates doubted the authenticity of
the proclamation. Iu deferenco to their wishes,
the Convention adjourned until tomoirow,

The Convention presented an appearance of
unwonted gravity, all feeling that the crisis has
arrived. The people here are clamorous for
secession, mid accounts from the interior rep
resent the feeling to be thoroughly aroused. A
change of sentiment in the Convention is fore
shadowed, and believed to he harmonious. The
final determination will undoubtedly be reached
in the secret session. Governor Letcher de
dines to express his opinion openly, previous
10 the receipt of tho ofhcml proclamation, but
his personal friends predict he will refuse to
entertain its propositions. The general opin
ion is, that the President having repudiated
Virginias ettorts lor a peacelul solution, sue
must now aid iu defending the South.
