NKW YOBK, April 12.
The Herald's special correspondent says
Fort Moultrie began the bombardment with
two guns to which Major Anderson replied
with three shots from his guns, after which
the batteries at Mount Pleasant, Cumming's
Point and the Floating battery opened a
brisk fire of shot and shells. Major An
derson replied only at long intervals until
between 7 and 8 o'clock, when he opened
from two tiers of guns looking toward Fort
Moultrie and Steven's battery, but at three
o'clock failed to produce serious effect. Dur
ing the greater part of the day Anderson
directed his shots principally against Moul
trie, Steven's and floating battery and Fort
Johnson, they being the only ones opera
ting against'him.' Fifteen or eighteen shots
struck the floating battery without effect,
breaches to all appearance being made in the
sides of Sumpter, exposed to the fire. Por
tions of the Parterre were destroyed, and
several guns shot away. The firing will
continue all night. The fort will probably
b» carried by storm. It is reported that the
Harriet Lane received a shot through her
wheel house in the offing. No other gov
ernment ships are in sight. The troops are
pouring into the city by thousands.'
CHABLESTOX, April 12.'
The firing has continued all day without
intermission. Two of Fort Sumpter'* guns
have been silenced. It is reported that a
breech lias been made in the southeastward.
answer to General Beaureguard's de
mand by Major Anderson, was, that he
would surrender whenever his supplies
were entirely exhausted, that is, if he is not
reinforced—not a causality has yet happen
ed to any of the floating battery in position.
Several hare opened fire on Fort Sumpter,
the remainder held in reserve for the ex
pected fleet. Two thousand men reached
this city this morning and embarked for
Morris Island and the neighboring Forts.

an attempt will be made to-night to re-in

Fort Sumpter is undoubtedly on fire. The
flames are now raging all around it. Maj.
Anderson has thrown out a raft loaded with
men, who are passing up buckets of water
to extinguish the fire, the Fort is scarcely
discernable. The men on the raft are nowHe
objects of fire from Morris Island. With
glasses balls can be seen skipping over the
water, striking the unprotected raft. Great
havoc is created among the poor fellows.
It is surmised that Major Anderson is
gradually blowing up the Fort, lie scarce

At half past eleven flames were bursting
from all the port-holes. The destruction of
Fort Sumpter is inevitable.
Four vessels, two of them large steamers,

The iron battery has been damaged. The
rifle cannon of the battery did great exe

into Major Anderson's embrassures.
Three of Sumpter's barbette guns were
dismounted, one of which was a ten inch
Coluinbiad. A corner of Fort Sumpter op

The breach made in Fort Sumpter is on
the side opposite Cumming's Point. Two
of the port holes are knocked into one.
Tho walls from the top are crumbling.
Three vessels, one of them a large sized
steamer, are over the bar and seem to be

The ships have not yet opened.

The greatest excitement prevails. The

LOUISIANA'S VOTE ON SECESSION.
At length we have an exhibit of what pur
ports to be the vote of Louisiana on seces
sion. It comes through the Delta, an orig
inal secession organ, and is therefore to be
received with caution. Taking them as they
stand, they present many interesting points
for observation. To give them additional
suggestiveness, we have thrown them into
tabular form, whereby they may be contras
ted with the vote for President in Novem
ber Inst, and be also considered in relation
to the cotton and sugar produced in the
The first and greatest point is that of the
fifty thousand five hundred and ten voters
who cast their suffrages for President of the
United States las fall, twenty thousand four
hundred and eighty-eight voted for seces
sion, leaving more than thirty thousand of
the voting population of Louisiana, who
either went directly against secession, or
else, regarding the whole thing as a farce,
did not vote at all. It is thus clear that in
January last more than three-fifths of the
citizens of Louisiana were in no hurry to go
out of the Union.—Philadctyhia Inquirer.
The above is is an interesting statement.
It shows what is doubtless the fact: that
there is in the seceded States a strong par
ty—amounting probably to a majority—who
would have remained in the Union had
there been a proper spirit of compromise
shown in the right quarter, and who would
now come backto the Union if such a spirit
were manifested. But what would become
of this party if a policy of force were de
termined on at this time?
From the Warrington correspondence of
the Pensacola Observer of the 28th, we have

DOUGLAS AND CRITTENDEN.
Douglas was in Baltimore, the other day.
was of course giying his attention to
movements for the salvation of the Union.
His plan in the Border States seems to be
public meetings which shall stimulate the
Union sentiment, so that there shall be no
secession by ony of those States until the
Northern people shall have an opportunity
of passing upon questions of adjustment and
compromise, which shall be mutually sat
isfactory. A correspondent at Baltimore of
one ol the New York papers has seen the
draft of a call, in Douglas' own handwriting
for such union meetings, in the following
All who are opposed to secession and
in favor of the restoration and preservation
of the Union by such/( amendments to the
constitution as will'insure the domestic
tranquility, safety and equality of all the
States, and thereby preserve the peace of
the country and perpetuate the Ueion of the
States are requested to meet &c."
While Douglas is thus operating in Mary,
land and Virginia, and while the patriotic
Crittenden is operating in the same behalf
in Kentucky and other border States, what
leading Republican is raising a finger in any
quarter for the salvation of the Union

A E I A I N PROPOSITION
We believe the radical wing of the Repub
lican party, desire a permenarit dissolution
of the Union. They have got rid of the
Cotton States, and they now seek to drive
offthe Border States. To accomplish this
eebjet, civil war is to be inaugorated on a
gigantic scale. If there was any desire or
design, on the part of the Radicals, to save
the Union, the Border Slates would be con
ciliated, by the adoption of a peace policy
toward the seceding States, and the ap
pointmentment of Union men to office from
the South. But no appointments have been
taken from the Union men of the Border
States, of any consequence violent Aboti
tionists have been called to high stations
the whole Government has been organized
upon a free State basis, and steps are nowtaking
to be taken toward the Cotton States that
the Border States have protested against
from the beginning, as certain to lead to a
united South against the General Govern
ment. We believe with Senator Douglas
that there are Disunibnists North, as well as
at the South and that the desire to form
a free State Confederacy, to be ruled over
by New England ann tee Middle States,is at
the bottom of the coercive policy, which it
appears, the Federal Government has at
last iniated.—Pioneer cC Democrat.
INTERESTING MEMORIAL OF MR.not.
I have seen to-day for the first lime, an
interesting relic of the late Secretary Marcy.
It is a literary paper entitled "The Reverie"
written by him near Albany in 1829, just
after his retirement from the office of Gov
ernor of New York. The Governor repre
sents himself in his study, reflecting on the
benefit of a more systemrtic reading for
improvement of the liesure which he then
thought would then last for the remainder
of his life. He represents himself a falling
into a reverie, when the books in his library
with which he was familiar, undergo a met
amorphosis, and assumed the shape of their
authors, and each comes forward to greet
him and offer him their society.
The imaginary conversation which the
dreamer carries on in turn with his indus
trious old friends and poets, historians, po
litical economists, philosophers, essayists,
divines an jurists, shows a most nice'and
discriminative appreciation of the great men
with whose minds, notwithstanding the
avocations of office and politics, he for many
years held commerce, lh style is per
fectly Addisonian in plainness, simplicity
and delicate strokes of humor. All the
principal poets, from Spencer to Byron,
historians, from Tacitus to Robertson, the
essayists* from Bacon to Johnson, a few
novelists, suchas Scott, Cervantes and
Sage, together with the classic French
authors, divines, from Dr. South to RobL
Hall, are characterised in a very happy vein
of criticism. Mr. Mercy's posthumous
coirespondence and papers are voluminous,
and will, when published, possess quite as
much interest for literary and general read
ers, as for the statesman and politician.—
In his diary, begun in 1838, 1 observe 318
pages devoted to literary topic?, notes on
authors read daily, and not 200 given to po
