The Daily Pwtss to-morrow will be of Hie 4
etc of the Weekly, la order to roako room
for the advertisements which havo been
crowdirg upon onr space, without encroach
ing on literary and editorial mutter. Oar
friends will oblige us by serdin? in their
advertisements as early as poE?ible to-day, as
the crowd of new advertisements on Satur

Fort Moultrie the Government Arms.
The report telegraphed here yesterday,
from the correspondence of the New York
Time, stating that the President has ordered
Capt Anderson to surrender Fort Moultrie,
if attacked, and that Capt. Anderson hid
delivered up a large quantity of arms which
bad been removed from the Arsenal to the
Fort, on dtmnnd of the Charleston people,
does not, in the latter particular, agree with
the circumstances ns previously stated.
It was stated several weeks ago thaan
attempt was tfcade by the officers Jof the Ar
senal to remove the arms to the Tort for se
curity, which was prevented by the citizens;
and that then the Arsenal w.'.s piuced under
the protection of the Charleston Light In
fantry : that is, they were virtually surren
dered. Therefore, if this was true, Captain
Anderson can not have delivered up any
arms from the Fort, unless they were the
armament of the Tort itself, and this is not
As to the instructions to surrender if at
tacked, they are not inconsistent with the
President's whole course, and may be true.
Having refused to send rc-enforcouicnts to
muke a garrison ade juatc to protect the
Fort, be could do no less than instruct the
Commandant to surrender it when threat
ened with force. They who consider for a
moment the extent of such fortifications,
must see that Capt. Anderson's command of
sixty or seventy men is not more thau suffi
cient to mount guard; and if a surprise was
expected, would be worn out by guard duty
a1 one in a few days.
The question whether the South Carolini
ans could take the Fort, is only a question
whether they will try, and if they have ordi
nary courage. It is utterly impossible for
that number of men to protect an extensive
fortification from assault. The refusal to
garrison the Fort was a surrender of it. Hav
ing done that, it was the duty of the Presi
dent to provide for the safety of the men.
Vot to do this would be a treacherous sacri
fice of heir lives.
The spectacle is a disgraceful one to the
nation, and most mortifying to the party
that placed such a President in power. The
only charitable solution of the affair is that
the excitement has overthrown the Presi
dent's wits. Unless his acts can be ex
plained by that, the disgraceful fact will
Lave to be acknowledged that we have open
treachery in the head of the Government.
The proposition of a compromise-line, di
viding the territory between froedom and
slavery, seemed to receive considerable fa
vor at the Union meeting, Wednesday, ilr.
J. Scott Harrison was di-cidedly in favor of
this remedy. But a little while ago we saw
in a lift of Southern wrongs, in a Demo
cratic paper of this city, the Missouri Compromise-line
included. It would be curious
to find that the hair of 1'ie same dog would
cure the same bite.
Some new territorial policy is certainly
required, for ours is a total failure. The
Government of the smartest people on earth,
and whose capability for self-government is
the envy of the old world, and causes the
tyrants of Europe to gnaw themselves with
jealousy, has established a stale of hostility
between itself aid its Territories. To emi
grate to a Territory now, is regarded as an
act of hostility to the Government. An
bonest, bard-fisted Democrat goes from Ohio,
Indiana, or any of the Western States, to
Kansas, and straightway he is, in the eyes
of the Government, metamorphosed into
New England Emigrant Aid Abolitionist,
for whom hanging is only too gqod.
At a time like this, when the utmost cau
tion is required to avoid exasperating the
South, it would not be consistent with the
conservatism of the Pbkss to throw a fresh
firebrand into the conflagration, by claiming
that Republicans who emigrate to the Terri
tories sbou'd not be summarily executed.
But when good Democrats, such us have in
variably composed the majority of the emi
gration to the new Territories, are made into
enemies by their own Administration,
merely for making pioneers of themselves,
we can not call it a triumphant territorial
We have all observed what a source of
gratification the Kansas famine has been to
the Democratic beart, although it is proba
ble that D ore Democratic bowels than any
other have been pinched by it. Fasting is
regarded as a beneficial discipline for sinners
who will emigrate into a Territory; and to
urge measures of relief, is regarded as quite
incendiary; and If done from the pulpit,
would bring it under the classification of
"degraded pulpit," which at the Union
meeting brought di.rn such nnited applause,
ai Hell from d'gni'aries of the church, as
from those whoco knowledge of the pulpit
must be intuitive, if they have any. .
Borne change is required in our territorial
policy. It is not much matter about the
people of the Territories. But our reputa
tion for capacity for self-government is
danger. Some policy should be devised
which a Denucrat may emigrate to the Ter
ritories without losing all rights that white
men are bound to respect. Whether the
restoration of the Missouri Compromise will
do this is a question. Probably if it should
be established, a Northern emigrant who
went over the line would be thought worthy
of the reception which they give our citi
leui now in the South, and which the man
agers of the Union-meeting seem to have
regarded as quite satisfactory, and
worthy of mention.
But the pertinent and forcible Inquiry
Mr. Groetbcck, on the subject of Comoro-
. mitef "What confidence can be placed
any new compromises when we have vio
btted kith in thuee we have made?'
only revived a melancholy recollection
the former fate of the Missouri Compromise,
but intimate! a resistance to a renewal
,, broken faith, from a party which could pre

No False Issues for Saving the Union.
To divert the labor of Union-saving to
false issues, will only spend it in vaia.
South Carolina has no complaints of viola
tions of the Fugitive-slave Law, nor of
personal-liberty laws. These excuses have
been offered her by her allies in the Northi
but she has honesty enough to disown them.
She declared that the election of Lincoln is
only the occasion for secession, but that she
secedes because she hates the Union on gen
Swift witnesses have told the South that
fifteen Northern States have personal-liberty
laws nellifying the Fugitive-slave law. The
South only uses it as justification for what
the cotton States had before determined on.
All she cares for it is to say, "you nullified
Nobody pretends that the personal-liberty
laws have tvA obstructed the Fugitive-slave
Law in tho least. Nor could thoy. If they
were in conflict with the fugitivo law, the
United States courts would declare them
void. That the courts never have done this
shows that they never obstructed the fugi
It is possible that one or two of the laws
that are thus classified, intended to obstruct
the execution of the fugitive law; regarding
the manner in which that violated legal
principles as a justification. But nearly all
of them were intended only to protect free
What if there are such laws ? Would any
sane man propose, as a concession to the
Sontli, that the Constitution be amended so
as to prohibit them. Would any Southern
man be so shallow as to regard this as a con
cession? If the laws conflict with the laws
of Congress they are null, and the courts
will so declare them when they come in the
way. Would the South abandon this prompt
and adequate remedy, and establish the prin
ciple tbat when a State passes an unconstitu
tional net, the Constitution has got to be
amended in order to put it down? How
Southern fanatics would sacrifice their own
rights and their constitutional protection if
they bad their own way. There is no
obstruction to theexecution of the Fugitive
slave Law in the North. The Constitution
is a complete protection against any. Any
change which could be made in it in that re
spect, would only weaken .the protection it
OfB wonderful national progress is sup
posed to astonish the world; but it is doubt
ful if we are not excelling ourselves in the
spectacle we now present to an Admiring
universe. We have the peoplo of a State in
the attitude of open rebellion against the
Government, and organizing for forcible
resistance ; ndthe United States Arsenal in
the possession of the rebels, by the consent
of the President, after they had resisted the
removal of the arms to a place of security.
The United States forts, without any ade
quate garrison, are threatened by the rebels.
The commandant has called upon the Presi
dent for re-enforcements, and he has refused
them. The most respectable membor of bis
Cabinet has resigned because the President
has refused to provide for the defense of tho
Government forts against rebellion. His
place is at once filled by an Attorney-Gen
eral, who lias just made himself notorious
by a quibbling opinion against the right of
the Government to suppress rebellion.
An open sympathiser with treason has
been permitted to hold a place in tho Cabi
net, and derange the finances of his own
Uovernmcnt, wnne ne waspiouing reoetuon
nptainst it. The President is openly nego
tiating with the reoels, ana virtually prom
ising them impunity during his Administra
tion, and leaving the Federal forts unpro
tected, as a condition that no overt act shall
be committed during his term of office.
Certainly, this is enough to astonish Eu
rope. It will find that the model Republic
is as rapid in its decline as in its rise. Where
they call things by their real names, they
will probably say that we have treason es
tablished in the Administration, and a traitor
