The Fall of Fort Sumter.
What the Northera Papers say about it.
Ti e Northern papers are filled with ve
ry amusing CommenIU4flts upon the result of
the bombardinent of Fort Sumter by our
tro)ps. From some of the leading journals
of various shades of opinion we make the
Fort Suiziter is lost, but Freedom is
saved. There is no inore thought of bri
bing or coaxing the traitors who have
dared to ai: their cannon b.als at the flag
...f t-:u Union, and those who gave their
;iv!s to defend it. It seems but yesterday
ww. at kast two-thirds of the journals of
this city were the virtual allies of the Se
cessioulsts, their apologists, their champi
ons. The roar of the great circle of bat.
teries pouring their iron hail upon devo
ted Sumter, has struck them all dumb.
It is as if one had made a brilliant and
effective speech, setting forth the inno
cen!ce of murder, aud, having just bidden
adieu to the cheers and the gas-light, were
to be coitfrointed by the gory formt and
staring eyes of a victim of assassination,
the first fruit of his oratorisal success.
For months bi-fore the late Presidential
election, a majority (f our journals pre
dicted- foreible resistance to the Govern
ment ai the natural and necessary conse
squ-llee of a R1epublican triumph; for
months since they have been cherishing
and encouraging the Slaveholders'.Rebel
lion as if it were a very natural and pro
per proceeding. Their object was purely
partisan-they wishcd to bully the ltepub.
liean A-hmnui-ration into shamneful recre
ancy -; Republican principle, and then
eall upon the people to expell from power
a p arty so rifligate and cowardly. They
did n't sue'wd in this; they have succee
ded in enticing their Southern proteges
an I some time allies into llagranlt treason.
There cannot be a rational doubt that
ev..,rv man who aided or abetted the at.
tack' tn Fort. Sumter is involved in thu
guilt oftreason. That all the besiegers of
Forts Sumter aid Pijkens have incurred
th.- pena!ty of Treason-which is Death
.,t f our yurnals lately parading the
pr.nk.< of the Seeessionists with scarcely
di-guised exultation, have beei uddenly
so'aered by the culmination of tho slave
holding conspiracy. They would evident
ly like to justify and encourage the trai
tors further, but they dare not ; so the
Amen sticks in their throat. The aspect
of the people appals them. Democrat as
well as Republican, Conservative and
RLdicLl, instinctively feel that the guns
fired at, Sumter were aimed at the heart
of the American R ep'ublic. Not even iii
the lowest groggery of our city would it
be safe to propose cheers for Beauregard
and Gov. Pickeus. The Tories of the
Revolution were relatively ten times as
numerous here as are the open sympathi
zers with the Palnetto Rebels. It is hard
to lose Sumter ; it is a consolation to
know tha~t in losing it we have gained a
united' people. Henceforth, the loyal
Snaes are a unit in uncompromising hos
tility to Treason, wherever plotted, how
ever justified. Fort Sumiter is tempora
ril:. lost, but the Country is saved. Live
th: Republic !-New Yorek Tribune.

No blame is imputed to Major Ander
son by the Administration, and no whis
per affecting his fidelity and loyalty is tal
erated. H~e acted upon a necessity con
templated by his orders, wvhich was to
yield the fort in case he should be encom
passed by an overwhelning force, or re
duced to'an extremity by the want of proi
visions. Aecording to information which
reached hero recently, his supplies were
expected. to be exhausted last T1uesday,
and hence the extraordinary efforts which
were imade here to recruit his enfeebled
garrison. Major Anderson himself en
deavored to get rid of t'ae laborers who
had been employed in the fort, for the puir
pose of restrieting the consumption to his
actua:l military command, but the State
authaorities refused to permit their depar
tur', and these additional mouths were
thus imposed upon his limited stock of
lu:ovisio~ns. In view of the threatened
conitigeney, an attempt was made to
co~mm~unicate with him on the 4th inst.,
convevingi discretion to abandon the fort.
if, in "his judgment, it could not be held
until supplies could be forwarded. But
har andi other dispatches were intercepted.

<ptently develoiped. Then the order cut
ting oftf his purchases in the Charleston
miarket was made. The desp-atch which
Lieut. Talbot took down, repeated this
discretion, but also aninounced to. him that
a vessel with supplies, supported by sev
era1 :,hips of war, would be sent to his re
liet. That dispatch could not be deliv
ured, and its general character was anti
eipatred by the intstruictions1 of the Govern.
wnt wiichhad been feloniously appro
priated befoire. It will thus be seen, that
the llevolutionists were fully informed,
not rmnly of the state of the garrison, but
of the p'dicy of the Governmenit in every
essential particular. WSith their immense
force, and numnero~us batteries, considering
that the storm had dispersed the fleet
which had be-en sent to M1ajor Anderson's
relief. or, at least prevented their co-ope
ration, the~ result is niot surprising.-T'ri

WAR DECLARED. at
At all events, the reduction of Fort ba
Sumter and this manifesto of President in
Lincoln are equivalent to a declaration of
war on both sides between the confeder. u
ate and the United States. In a conflict lo
of this sort there can be but two parties- le
a Northern and a Southern party-for all
other parties will cease to exist. The po- he
litical principles, organizations and issues
which have divided our country and our ce
people, in various shapes and forms, since th
the treaty of our independence with Eng- ti
land, will all bu very soon overwhelned de
in the sweeping changes of a civil war.- he
It would be folly now to argue what might, th,
could, would, or should, have been done th
by Southern fire-eaters and Northern dis- se
organizers in 1854, 1860, or by Mr. Bu- gi
chanan, or by Mr. L:ncoln, or by the late an
session of Congress. Civil war is upon o
us, aid the questions which now supersede or
all others are: What are the consequen- l
ces now before us ? Where is this war to fu
ntid ? and how and when? W hat is our or
duty under this warlike condition of
thinigs ? and what are the movements and ev
the conditions necessary to change this fr<
state of war to a state of peace ? * he
These questions will irresistibly im- ha
press themselves upon the mind ofevery di
thinking nuan, North and South. Ear- .i
nestly laboring in behalf of peace. from
the beginning of these sectional troubles
down to this day, and for the maintenance
of the Union through mutual concessions, g
we do not even yet utterly despair of ar- b[
resting this civil war before it shall have th
passed beyond the reach of reason.-Xew to

THE BULLET VS. TI BALLOT. or
The " irrepressible conflict," started by in
Mr. Seward, and endor'sed by the Itepub. 01
lican party, has at length attained to its Ei
logical, foreseen result. That conflict, un- P
dertaken "for the sake of humanity,"
culninater now in inhumanity itself, aid
-xhibits the aftlicting spectacle of brother su
sh-dding brother's blood. of
Refusing the ballot, before the bullet, eil
these men, flushed with the power and pe
pitronage of the Federal Goveri.nent, fI
have madly rushed into a civil war, which e,
will probably drive the remaining Slave V4
States into the arias of the Southern Con- U,
tderacy, and dash to pieces the last hope b~
for a reconstruction of the Union. g
To the gallant men, who are so nobly in
efending the flag of their country within an
the walls of Fort Sumter, the nation owes no
a debt of eternal gratitude-not less ea:
thani to the equally gallant and patriotic ha
<pirits, who, in like obedience to the de- or,
