very soon of pUying private soldier:

the slave interest will be determined. If that
unity is real, aud the slave interest supreme, the
war will be one of terrible character uiul im

to a speedy and tearful termination."
That such an insurrection would follow a war
between the North nnd South, is just as certain
as that the sun will rise to morrow. A " termin

deed be "fearful" nnd woe be to those who
bring that calamity upon us, in the insane grat

Delicately Admitted. A secession cor
respondent of the New York Herald, writing
from Montgomery, April 1, says :
" There are various reports in circulation as

THE ATTITUDE OF VIRGINIA.
Virginia has bean brought to tho brink of n
precipice by her public men. They have prov
ed themselves unable to get out of the circle of
provincial ideas, and, therefore, altogether un
equal to a great crisis. If they are not repu
diated by the people, tho plunge, fatal to a no
ble State, will be soon taken. But it is not yet
taken, nnd there is still time to save both the
interests nnd the honor of Virginia. lbo
voters of that State, the ultimate sovereigns,
are uncommitted to auy policy, and untram
melled by any pledges. Their destinies are
still in their own hands.
So far as the question of secession is con
to that of determining whether the present
emergency is sufficiently grave to submit an
ordinanco of secession to the people. The
command of the people, so decisively made on
the 4 th of February, that nothing to be done look
ing to secession should be of the least validity,
until submitted to and approved by themselves,
completely excludes the Richmond Convention
from defining the conditions of fact under
which Virginia will secede. From tho very
terms of their commission, they are precluded
from touching that question at all. All-powerful
as to everything else, they have no right to
do anything in the matter of secession, except
to determine whether it is wise to submit a
proposition for it to the people. As they are
thus expressly prohibited from the act of seces
sion, they have no right to annouueo the terras
without which Virginia will not remain in the
Union. Ab it is for the people of that State to
determine that question, it is for them to act
upon their own reasons in determining it. Not
only has the Convention no right to compromit
the State, by pledging it in advance to any line
of policy, to be pursued in this or that contin
gency, but all pretence of such a right is taken
away by the fundamental condition upon which
its members were chosen.
Thus, then, and this is a point of the highest
importance and meeting us at the very threshold,
the honor of Virginia is committed to nothing.
Whatever the members of the Richmond Con
vention may have done, in stating the condi
tions upon which Virginia will remain in the
Union, is sheer assumption, and not merely the
assumption of a power not granted, but the
assumption of a power expressly withheld and
interdicted. When the people of Virginia re
served to themselves the power of deciding the
question of secession, the power so reserved was
iutended to be, and is, untrammelled by any
commitments whatever. An agent, command
ed to do nothing in a given particular, without
reference to his principal, cannot forestall the
decision of his principal by pledges. lie cam
not entangle the honor of his principal, and
thereby impair that complete freedom of judg
ment and decision, which his principal intend
ed to preserve.
The present question then is, not what Vir
ginia is bound in honor to do, as she is so
bound to nothing whatever, but what it is wise
and patriotic for her to do, and the people,
scattered over the hills and valleys of her im
perial domain, nre much more likely to decide
that question wisely, than the members of a
Convention, befogged by interminable discus
sions, tiammclled by tho formulas of leaders,
aad overawed by tho populace of the city in
which its sittings are held.
The Warriutou correspondent of the New
Orleans Delta, writing on the 2d, says the
Brooklyn arrived at Pcnsacola on the 3 1st ult.,
after ten days ubsence. lie further writes :
" The works commenced are in a highly
finished state, and new batteries have been
commenced within the past threo days. I
should think Lieut. Slemmer would begin to
consider the erection of so many in such close
proximity to each other as hardly tending to
strengthen his tenure of oQice as monarch of
the island of Santa Rosa. There aro thirteen
companies at present here from Alabama,
numbering, on an average, about ninety men
each; two companies from Georgia, one of them
numbering one hundred and ten men ; nnd tho
Zouaves, representing Louisiana. Florida can
hardly be said to be represented here, as there
is not a company from that State in the field.
Tho men nnd women of Alabama seem to he
imbued with tho truo spirit of bravery ; they
havB fully twelve hundred men here, represent
ing all classes in tho State. Doctors, editors,
ex-Congressincn, State Senators, lawyers, plant

gressman Pugh can shovel sand and make ex

doubted talent, woik as laboriously as a New

" While our population were fleeing from the
apparently near approach of war, whole fami
lies having deserted their houses, and Bought

who were soldiering away down in this part of
Florida, which they all say naturally and geo
graphically belongs toAIabama, They are
In a list of Florida companies reported to be
at Pensacola, numbering a little more than
three hundred men, there were two companies
in the vicinity, not actually in service, but
merely held in readiness. As the Delta's cor
respondent says, " Florida can hardly he said
to be represented'' in the array beforo Pickens.
Tho ultimate purpose is, to wipo Florida out,
and divide her between Alabama and Georgia.
To tho victors belong the spoils.
Not only does Florida take little part in this
war with her Boldiers, but her people arc rail
ing away from it. What is happening at Pen
sacola, as stated above, and as confirmed by
other accounts, is the driving off of the peace
ful population of Florida, to seek uuy shelter
from a brutal and plundering soldiery.
To repel this invasion of Florida, is not

entitled to our protection,

HON. JOHN L. CARLILE.
We have received a pamphlet copy of the
speech of this gentleman in the Virginia Con
vention, deliveri.d on the 7th of Mnri.li. Tho
telegraphic reports of tub speech gnon very
Imperfect iden of it.
Mr. Cnrlile begins with the Richmond En
quirer. He says that every movement that has
been made in Virginia, looking to m-cessiou,
has been in exact conformity to tho programme
laid down by that paper. In October hut, be
fore the clectiou, its editors advised the cotton
States immediately and separately to secede,
and argued that they would inevitably drag
Virgiuia after them. That was the sentiment
of editors who professed an ardent love for a
mother Commonwealth, heretofore accustom
ed to give law to the States of th'n Con
federacy, to place her in a condition to be
dragged at the heels of the cotton States of this
Mr. C. quotes from that paper of July 23,
1858, in which it denounces the " faction " in
tho following terms :
" The shrilltougued faction which has din
ned our ears so unmercifully with the cry of
disunion, is composed of three distinct classes.
Of these, the first is by fir tho most respect
able; it consists of Simon Pure disuuionists,
who are laboring honestly and openly for n
dissolution of the Union. Tho second in made
up of men whose real object is disunion, but
who cloak it under flimsy pretences nnd dis
guises. The third ret are no disunioniits at
all; but a mere band of malcontents, disap
pointed in their political aspirations, who re
quire a thorough disorganization and reorgani
zation of parties, to offer opportunity for their
own elevation to power, and find no scheme
so available as that of exciting sectional and
foctionnry differences among tho members of
the only remaining national party."
He also goes further back, and quotes from
the same paper in 1814 :
"No man, no association of men, no State, or
set of States, has a riaht to tcitlidraic itself
from this Union of tls men account. The
same power winch Knit us together, enn un
knit. Tho same formality which funned the
links of the Union is necessary to dissolve it.
The majority of States which formed the Union
must consent to the withdrawal of any branch
of it. Until that consent has been obtaiued,
any attempt to dissolve the Union, or distract
the ellicacy of its consitutional law, is treason,
treason, to all intents nnd'purposes."
Such was the doctrine, in 1814 and in 1858,
of a paper now devoted to immediate secession.
Mr. Cnrlile quotes the conclusion of Mr. Lin
coln's inaugural address, and defends the Pres
ident in not recognising the ordinances of seces
sion passed by the seceded States. He says:
" What less could Mr. Lincoln have said ? I
am not here as his defender or his apologist.
God knows, if there is a man in the land who
regrets his existence and the existence of his
party more tnnn l no, l know mm not, uut l
um a Virginian, born and raised in the State,
never having lived out of it, und list expecting
to die out of it. I have too much Virginia
blood in my veins to do the slightest injustice
to the meanest reptile that crawh. Mr. Lin
coln does not recognise these ordinances of
Bccession, by which these States may have sev
ered the tie that bound them to the rest of tho
States of the Union. And I cannot, for the
life of me, reconcilo tho opinions offered by tho
distinguished gentleman fiom Bedfuid, (Mr.
Goggin,) deuying the right of secession, but
yet recognising it as a duty, on the part of Vir
ginia, to give her aid, and to spill her blood, if
necessary, and expend her money and appro
priate her men in defence of tlio-u who have
done that which, if they have not the right of
secession, is evidently an illegal act. " "
" But, sir, is there anything in this inaugural
address to justify, for a moment, the assertions
that have been iniide upon this floor, that it
breathes a spirit of war? Read it again, gen
tlemen. More pacific, more peaceful language
could not have been employed by Mr. Lincoln,
unless he had been willing to stand up before
that assembled multitude in Washington, nnd
proclaim to them, that ' although in a few mo
menta I shall swear to discharge the duties of
l'resiaent ot the United states, and to preserve,
protect, nnd defend tho Constitution of the Uni
ted Stutes, I don't mean to do it I mean to
perjure myself.' Sir, unless he had done this,
he could not have done less than he has done.
He has told you, in effect, umTtold you in plead
ing, begging terms, that no war will be made
upon you, thut no force will bo used against
you none whatever. But you were dissatis
fied, and he appeals to you nnd says : ' Dissat
isfied though you be, wait, wuit aud pursue tho
remedy pointed out under tho Constitution, to
provide for you every guarantee, every protec
tion that you may desire; I shall do nothing to
injure you ; it is made my duty to say, 3s Mr.
Buchanan, as General Jackson, and every Pres
ident beforo me has said, nnd as every future
President must say, that I will preserve my
oath.' But after that he tells you, that if States
nre so hostile to him that no one, residing iu
them will accept tho offices which aru to bu
filled by the Federal Government, he wilf not
attempt to fill them by parsons from other
States who may be obnoxious to them.
"But these gentlemen say: 'Hi says he in
tends to preserve aud protect the forts and other
public property of tho United States.' Well,
sir, is he not right iu doing so 1 Is it not his
duty to do so? Would ou have him to do
lean? Did you not sustain Mr. Buchanan in
doing so to the extent thut he did (u!i J it
right that those gentlemen in Louisiana (hall
rob the mint of v our money and of mv montv ?
that they shall rob you ot your munitions of
war, ana or your ions and arsenals and dock
yards? Is it your duty, as good citizen's, to
stand by and thus connive at this act oft bad
faith, and to speak well of it, and to givu it aid
and support, and to say to the Federal Govern
ment: 'If you do not give up these forts nnd
arsenals and dock yards peaceably, willingly,
wby,",we will make war upon you,' Sir, I. ami
the people I rapresent, do not read our unties
iu that way. Mr, Lincoln, iu his inaugural ad
dress, virtually told you that he is not going to
make any effort to rUake forts wlrch were iken
before he came into power ; it would be impol
itic for him to dp so. On the contrary, he, neg
atives such an infesoncu as much as he could
do so, by saying that he will eudcavor tq pre
serve, sustain, and hold the public property so
that he. may hand it over to his successor as it
was handed to him by Mr. Buchanan ) and that
is all he does say.
" Now, sir, looking alone to my own ideas of
what would be expedient, in the present ciniii
tion of the country, I would say, not only let
them go with what they have taken, bi h-t
them have wlint is still left to take, if they do
Rire it; for 1 um satisfied, as much as I crn be
of any fact that hns to occur in the foturv'lkat
one yeur will not roll ruund m.td tho potjjlo of
cucu uuu an oi uiose amies which nave, n we

which they obui.iod through their coiiliiyuce,
and raise again, high above the rattlesnakuuntl
the palmetto, tho stars and stripes of ovr be
loved land. Believing this, I would let them
alone. I would Id them, to use the language
of politicians, 'stand out in the cold awhile,'
and, I warrant you, they will come shivering
hack, gladly, to a Union fire."
The following is the conclusion of this most
able aud patriotic speech:
"Sir, can any man believe that in caso of a
dissolution of the Union, we would enjoy any
thing like the fieedom and liberty and equnlilv
which we now enjoy under this General Gov
ernment of outs? Could wh maintain ouiselves
without a strong military force, kept up at an
enormous and exhuasting expense? We are
now, under tho Union, and in tho Union, the
freest, the most independent, aud tho happiest
people on earth. Distolvo the Union, nnd a'
military despotism, the licentiousness of the
camp, and ragged poverty, will be substituted in
"And now, Mr. President, in the name of
our illustrious dead, in the name of nil the
living, iu the name of raill.ons yet unborn, 1
protest against this wicked effort to destroy the
fairest nnd freest Government on tho earth.
And I denounce all attempts to involvo Vir
gnia to commit her to self-murder, as nn in
sult to nil reasonable living Iiumauity, and a
crime against God. With the dissolution of
this Union, 1-hesitatenot to say, the sun of our
liberty will have set forever."

BROOKLYN NAVY YARD.
From the N. Y. Tribune of April 11.
There is no doubt that orders for tho imme
diate fitting out of tho United States ships
Wabash, Perry, and Savannah, have been re
ceived at the Brooklyn navy yard.
The housing of the Wabash was removed
yesterday, extra hands put to work ou her, nnd
preparations made to put coal on board, which
shows that the authorities are in a hurry to
have her completed for commission, From the
appearance ot things, her machinery will bo
finished by Mr. King very soon, and steam will
probably be applied on Saturday.
The rigging, carpenter-work, and ordnance,
were taken in hand, to be hurriedly got ready.
The Wabash is in fine condition, rates 40 guns,
but does not carry moro than 25; is 3,200 tons
burden, and was built in Philadelphia in 1855.
Having been constructed of timber fresh and
green from the woods, and subsequently sent
to a warm climate, sho was at one time deemed
unsound, but is now all right. She will be fit
for commission in three weeks.
The brig Perry, whoso state of readiness is
to bo turned into condition for active service,
will bo rigged to day. Somo riggers are to bo
taken on to expedito the job. Six days will suf
fice to put her in duty trim. The Perry is 280
tons burden, carries six guns, and was built at
Gosport in 1843. She has cruised on nearly
every squadron, nnd wan last attached to tho
Paraguay expedition. She can bo mr.de ready
for sen in three weeks.
The corvette Savannah, now in the dry dock,
is to bo prepared also, we should judge. Sho
can be in the commissioned state in fivn weeks.
The Savannah is a sailing corvette, 1,720 tons
burden, is rated for 24 guns nnd' 300 men, and
was built at Brooklyn in 1842. Sjc was n 50
gun fiigatc until 18 j7. Her last duty wus per
formed as flag ship of the homo squadron, the
Cumberland, now to be replaced by tho Miune
sota, relieving her.
The London SCor finds conscqueuco3 calling
for hopeful recognition in the disrupturo of the
.United States. Principal among these is tho
establishment of three powerful societies to en
courage the growth of cotton by free labor,
which, if it can be successfully done, will in
sure the extinction of negro slavery in due time,
by the operations of economical laws.
Tho funernl of tho Duchess of Kent took
place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle,
on the 25th of March, thu proceedings being

country, many shops wero partially closed.
Minute guns were fired at intervals throughout
the day, from the various navy yards and men-of-war.
