TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 1861.
Death or an Inestimable I.ady.
, It is with emotions of poignant sorrow that
we record the death of Mrs. Ellen R. Johx
sos, the esteemed wife of our former fellow
citizen, W. A. Johnson, Esq. She died in
New Orleans the 6th inst., after a brief ill
nesa. ' So suddenly was her pnre spirit called
away, her relatives and friends here had not
beard that she was ill. and the announce
ment of her death, by telegraph, was alto
gether unexpected and shocking in the ex-
" treme. 11 er nealth bad been somewhat im
paired daring the past winter, and she was
looking - forward with pleasurable hopes of
recruiting it, in oar midst, the latter part of
the present spring and the ensuing summer
Bat in the Providence of God ebe was not
permitted to realize her anticipations.
The deceased was a native of Lexington,
Kj., whence she came to thia place with her
narentu Cant. CHJVEK and lira. Rachel
Hakt, about the year 1825. Here " she
was reared and educated, and spent the
greater portion of her days. She was one of
the numerous talented alumnct, who own the
old Academy as their Alma Mater, and who,
scattered throughout the Southern Slates,
are ornaments of the social circle, dispensing
pleasure and happiness by their charms of
mind and eraces of person. ' On the 1st of
November. 1843. she was united in mar
riage to Mr. Jouxso.-c to whom she was de-
TOtedly attached, and in whose reciprocal
affection she realized an unwonted share of
conjugal happiness. The result of this for-
innate alliance was an only child, a lovely
daughter, whom she was called upon to
yield np ere yet the bud had began to ex-
camd into the blooming flower. After the
death of this dear child, an event which
weighed heavily upon her bleeding heart,
bat which she did net suffer to embitter her
feelings, or chill the genial warmth of her
sonny nature if she became more exclusive
in her devotion to her husband, and felt
-ore the need of his sustaining sym
pathy, she still had a cheering smile and
kindly word for those who eDjoyed the pleas
ore of ber friendship or society. It was
ever pleasant to be near her. Her impul
ses were invariably good ; the nobleness
of her example exerted a salutary influence
upon all who approached her. It was al
most impossible in her presence to be de
pressed; not to realize something of the
joyousness of her spirit, and experience a
higher regard for her sex. In every relation
of life she was inestimable. No husband
could desire a more affectionate, confiding
and considerate wife. As a daughter she.was
ever mindful of her filial obligations and dis
charged them with a fidelity and tenderness
which never faltered. It was her misfor
tune in early life to mourn a father lost, to
know ber mother a widow and - herself an
orphan, bat no misfortune could weaken her
reverential love for her mother, and the
prosperity of later years only served to con
firm and strengthen it. Nor did she perform
less sacredly her duties as a sister. It could
not be said of her that she ever voluntarily
caused a pang in the hearts at the home hearth
She loved them all too well, and prized too
highly, for that, the " small sweet courtesies
which do so much to create a happy home.
We have never known one of her sex more
constant or sincere in friendship. Sure, be
fore extending her confidence that the object
was worthy, she did not allow her opinions
to be influenced by caprice or any ungenerous
sentiment, bat had the courage to adhere
to the convictions of an honest judgment'
At the bedside of the sick she was truly an
Angel of Mercy.' There her good quali
ties combined to illustrate the beauty of ber
character. The ready sympathy, the gentle
manner, the unerring judgment, always at
her command, made ber a blessing to the
sick, and she was prompt to respond to
calls of this nature. She did not pause to
weigh the suggestions of comfort and conve
nience, to herself, Dot made them subservi
ent to the cause of humanity and duty. To
alleviate the sufferings of others she was
willing to encounter fatigue and privation,
concerned only lest she could not be suffi
It was impossible for a woman of this
character not to make a deep and abiding
impression on the hearts of her friends ; not
to occupy a prominent niche in the society of
her choice. Few who really cared so little
for admiration Jjhave been so generally honor
ed and caressed; and fewer still have lived
within a 'sphere no larger than hers, with a
greater number of warmly attached friends.
This is the homage which true worth ex
acts, "" and which society unhesitatingly
Had the death of oar lamented friend oc
curred in the winter of life, when we were
led to expect it by the presages of its frosts
and snows, the event would have been de
plorable. Coming in the prime of woman
hood, when all her faculties for
usefulness were in their vigor, it is a
heart-rending calamity. As a dispensation
of Almighty Wisdom, its purposes are beyond
oar vision. Bat, though we do not under
stand it, let as meekly submit. If the has
been taken from us, we have left a rich in
heritance in the memory of her many vir
tues, and the example afforded ns in the
daily beauty of her life, to incite us to be
good and useful, and to live and die as she
did, a noble and tkci hearted Christiah.
These let as contemplate, and we may
even from the bitter waters of sorrow draw
comfort ud oosolation.

The friends of the Union in our State must
not suppose that because they have thus far
triumphed over the secessionists, that every
thing is secure. We mast organize, and pat
forth oar best men, who will show the de
signs of those who are plotting day and night
to break us off from the Government of our
fathers.- We have in Tennessee an active,
bold and reckless party, led by men of des
perate political fortunes, who publicly and
privately avow their determination to work
until the separation of our State from the
Federal Union is accomplished. It is never
safe to rely upon the weakneea of your ad
versary, and this is particularly the case
now. The Union party is so large that there
is great danger of defeat by divisions In its
ranks. Let as 11 strive to heal ail dissru

other glorious victory awaits us.

The President The pending qnes-tTonii
upon the reference of the report of the Com
missioners from Virginia to the Peace Con
ference at Washington, to the Committee on
Federal Relations ; and, upon that question,
the gentleman from Kanawha is. entitled to
- Mr. Suemers, of Kanawha. Mr. President,
I fool that I owe an apology to the Conven
tion for its indulgence and attention. I cer
tainly expected to have concluded the re
marks I felt called npon to submit, daring
the sitting of yesterday, but wishing to com
ply with the pleasure of others, I yielded to
a motion for adjournment.
, In the review of the adjustment agreed up
on bv the Peace Conference at Washington, I
bad reached the fifth article in the series, de
signing, as I had done in regard to the other
flection, in exnreoa m v ooinions on those
which remain to be examined, and which
vr intAnriofl ' tmretfcer. to constitute. If
adopted, the thirteenth amendment of the
Constitution of the United States. I will pro
ceed to express my views in regard to the re
maining parte. ...
The filth section, as prepared, is in these
The foreign slave trade is hereby forever
crobibited : and it shall be the duty ot Con
gress to pass laws to prevent the importation
of slaves, collies, or persons held to service
or labor, into the United States and Territo
ries from places beyond the limits thereof."
I remark, 3Ir. iTesident, in tne nrst place,
that the vote of the Commissioners from Vir
ginia, was cast as a unit against this section.
It is not my purpose, nor indeed am I pre
pared, if it were proper, to state the motives
governing the several gentlemen composing
the Commission from Virginia, in regard to
that vote. It is sufficient that 1 say tor my
self, that I entirely concur in the statement
found in the explanatory letter of my late
colleague. Judge Broctenbrough. In speak
ing ot this section, he savs :
" The section prohibiting the foreign slave
trade, by constitutional amendments, is ob
jectionable, smply because it was wholly un
necessary. Even the Confederate btates oi
the South, now constituting an independent
Government of slave States, de facto, if not de
litre, have prohibited this traffic.
Tne advoctes for re-opening it in any oi
the border slave States are very few, and
there was no sort of necessity of interpola
ting this provision, wnicn naa no connection
with the Dendintr controversy, into this
scheme of adjustment."
We do not know the precise attitude of the
government at Montgomery towards the Af
rican slave trade. The newspapers tell us of
a veto by tne iTesiaent oi some out relating
to that subject. I have not seen the grounds
of the veto, nor do I know what was the exact
character ot the bill.
It will be remembered. Mr. President, that
the Constitution of the United States, itself,
contains no inhibition of the foreign slave
trade. The only provision relating to the
subject is this : ' The migration or importa
tion of such persons as any of the States now
existing shall think proper to admit, shall not
be prohibited by Congress prior to the year
one thousand and eight hundred and eight."
We all know that after the arrival ot me
Deriod at which thev might legitimately act,
Congress did prohibit the slave trade, made
it Diracv to engage in it, and that it remains
a ptohibited traffic from that time to this. I
was of pinion myself, that it was a matter
tn he lnft to Congressional regulation as
heretofore left nnder the provisions ot th
Constitution. - - .
I have, however, heard objections made to
this section, which do not sinse uie as ui
founded. It seems to be supposed by some
gentlemen, that in the event the seceded
States continue out of the Union, and their
indenendence should be recognized by the re
maining Government, this provision might.
n some form, operate against iue iraumer oi

the Union. . -
Mr. President, it must be quite obvious
that in devising amendments to the Constita-.
tion, looking to the settlement oi any vi iue
questions of difficulty and controversy which
now disturb us, tne uonierence ws cuusu tim
ed to look to the Government as an unbroken
one; that it was compelled to propose amend-
meUtS tO tne CiOUSlllUUOn vi mc liuuuu; on
it now is, without changed of boundary, and
that it would have been incompetent, as it
would have been inexpedient and improper.
to provide a proposed amendment to the Con
stitution Ot the United Biaies, uuseu upou
the hvnothnsis that it was alteady, or was
soon to be, disintegrated. What I mean to
say is, that in proposing amendments to the
Constitution, as a matter of course, the Con
ference was bound to look to the whole
country as it is, and not as it possibly may
But again, sir my understanding of this
section was at the time, and is now, that It is
a prohibition directed against the foretgn
ilm trade the African slave trade as
traffic not hereafter not to be allowed. The
provision is that "the foreign slave trade is
herehv forever prohibited : and it shall be
the duty of Congress to pass laws to prohibit
the importation of slaves, coolies, or persons

territories from places beyond the limits
thereof." Now. is it not the fair mode of
construction, is it not the legitimate ana
onlv mode of construction, to take every part
and nortion of this paragraph together and in
nrrimabrial When it is made the duty of
Congress to pass laws prohibiting the impor
tation of slaves from beyond the limits of the
United States, it is the importation from for-eio-n
o.onntries which is denounced. It is di
rected against the African, the foreign slave
trade. This, nnauestiooably. was the pur-
noae in tne minaa oi muse wuu nomni buu

supported the amendment in the Conference.
Now, Air. rresiaeni, so iar as msuijecuuu
rests upon the idea, mat in tne event oi tne
recognition of the independence of these
Southern States which have seceded irom
the Union, that the limits and boundaries of
the United States are then changed, and that
this constitutional amendment, looking not
to the hoar of its enactment, or its ratifica
tion, but sneaking at the moment of its exe
cution, might be construed to prevent me
bringing ot slaves from South Carolina,
Georgia. Louisiana and other Southern
States into Virginia and other slave States,
as coming trom beyond tne limits or tne
United States, I have this remark to make :
In the first place, the course of trade in
slaves have been and always will be, not
from the cotton and sugar States to the agri
cultural slave States of the Union, but, e cow
vow from the border States to the cotton, the
sugar, and the rice States. There never
has been, mere is no reason to suspect mere
ever will be a system of slave trade by which
we of the border slave States are to receive
slaves from that region. We all very well
know that the productions of slave labor in
that region of the country are greatly more
profitable than with us, and that by conse
quence the price of negroes is always higher
in the cotton and sugar (States than it is in
the border States.
But, again, sir the objection that Virginia
owners working slaves on a cotton and sugar
plantation in the Southern States that have
ceceded, might perhaps not be permitted to
bring them back to Virginia, I do not think
a valid pne.Take the m -Ij-atlcB w
stding in Virginia and working a por
tion of his slaves on a cotton plantation in
Mississippi, or on a sugar plantation in Lou
isiana, and who might find it convenient to
exchange the point of labor for these hands
from time to time, rendering it necessary to
pass back and forth with them from the State
of his plantation to Virginia. In my opinion
this section would, not apply to any such
case. I think in the first plaee it applies
alone to the foreign slave trade, and in the
second place, that the removal of hands by-a
Virginia . owner nnder ' the circumstances
supposed, would not be an " importation "
of slaves into the United States in the sense
of this section. By way of an illustration,
suppose that a Virginia contractor upon
some public work in Brazil, which is a slave
country tak the DQ Pedro Railroad bow
in course of construction in the" Empire of Bra
zil say that a Virginian takes with him fiifty
or a hundred of his slaves to work npon that
railroad aud, that he retain them there
in his own Bervice and upon that work one
year, two years, or until the completion of
the contract, whatever time it may be; would
the bringing back to Virginia of his own
6lares, carried there ' and employed in his
own service, subject him to the penalties of
the foreign slave trade ? - Would it be piracy
on his part to bring them back f . Would it
be importation of slaves from beyond the lim
its ot the United States within the meaning
of this, amendment ? It would - only be
bringing back his own property 111 would
only be bringing back bis own property. It
would in no sense be a "slave trade," or ' an
M importation." It would be upon the same
principle that an 'American visitor in Europe,
a foreign ambassador if yon choose, might
take bis household servants with him if the
laws of the country permitted it, and having
retained them in his service the period of hi
absence, bring them back on his return. This
would be neither the foreign slave trada"
or &o "important of iUTe?i -.'r.;-
Besides all this, if the seceded States shall
remain oat and become a foreign nation, all
these questions of intercourse, with slave
property, can be arranged by treaty stipula
tions. ' '
But. Mr. President, let us see how this
matter would work if we attempted another
iorm. suppose this section had been so
framed, as to provide that "the importation
of slaves, coolies or persons held to service
or labor, into the United States and the Ter
ritories, from places beyond the present lim
its inereor " shall be prohibited. suppose it
had assumed that shape "from beyond the
present limits thereof." In that case, in the
event of the recognition of the independence
of these Southern seceded States, they would
no longer iorm part ana parcel or the United
States, but yet were within the limits of the
United States at the time of the adoption

"present limits." Suppose, Mr. President,
tnat wis ionieaeraie uovernment, thus re
cognized, and independent, should itself
hereafter establish the African slave trade.
might not slaves, imported from Africa into
the bout hern Confederacy, be exported
tnence into tne border slave states, without
violating the amendment thus framed? In
such case, the slaves would not be imported
into Virginia from beyond the "present limits
oi tne umiea states," but from points within
those present limits. The importation would
not, therefore, be prohibited. Thus, the peo
ple or tne ooraer slave states might be sub
jected, tn mvtfun, against their will, to the
African slave trade. While the provision,
naa it oeen mus rramed, would have prohib-
ltea tne slave states, which remained in
the Union, and under the Constitution, from
importing slaves from Africa, it would not
have prevented the importation of slaves by
tne soutnern Confederacy, after, its indepen
dency, and their exportation into the other
In any aspect of the question, it seems to
me that this section, while it was not necessa
ry while the prohibition might have been
well left to Congressional legislation is not
onnoxious to the objections which nave been
raised against it. There would seem to be.
as Judge Brockenbroagh intimates, a general
concurrence of opinion adverse to the re
opening of the African slave trade; and such
would seem to be the hereditary, traditional
position of Virginia.
- Mr. Morton Will the gentleman permit
me to as-k him a question? I am perfectly
satisiied that the gentleman is not inclined to
wilfully do any injustice to the people of the
south. But, if I understood him correct
ly, I think be expressed the opinion, that an
act against re-opening the African slave
trade bad been vetoed by the President of
the Confederate States, without stating the
grouods upon which that veto had been ren
dered. I merely wish to ask the gentleman
if he has the slightest impression that that was
a taw interdicting the Alrican slave trade,
and that the veto was placed upon that ground
at the time that the President signed it! If
so, I have to inform him that the Constitution
of the Confederate States expressly interdicts
mat trade; and if there was a veto in relation
to it, I presume it arose from the character
of the penalties for its violation. Some in
the south think that the crime of piracy is
unconstitutional: and the Congress of the
Confederate States may have passed a law
cxiuuging tne cnaracter ot the enme. remov
ing the penalty of piracy and substituting
that for felony, and that the President at
Montgomery may have vetoed.

warranted any inlerence of that kind.
J was about to remark further, in reolv to
uik genuemau irom urange, (Mr. Morton,)
that the information which I have received
in regard to the action of the Con cress of
tne conieaerate states, at Montgomery, is
mrougu tne medium or the public press. I

l understood irom the aceount of the trans

the law carrying on that trade. Instead of
leaving it as a telony, it was made to be a
misdemeanor. I have not seen the veto
message, and I know nothing of the grounds
upon wnicn me resident predicated his veto,
Mr. Morton, i nope the gentleman will
understand that I did not mean to impute to
him the slightest intention to misrepresent
anything at all, but I thought that the fact
might net have been cognizant to him that
the African slave trade is as positively in
terdicted by the Constitution of the Southern
Confederacy as it is by the article to which
he is now referring.

it will not do to predicate it npon what may

. rpi.. - . . . .
uieub xue puiut ui my remarK. in tnis re
gard, was simply this : That had this pro
vision prohibiting the importation of slaves
beyond the present limits of the United States
been inserted, if in the future, the African
Blave trade should be introduced by the Con
federate States of the South, and should be
made lawful, then by such phraseology, the
difficulty to which I have referred might
ante, it wouia, in tnat event, not be an im
portation from beyond the present limits of
toe united states, and although von mis-ht
prohibit the direct African slave trade, we
might be led into the traffic through the me
dium of an independent government conti
guous to us, and which was in our own limits
at the time of adopting the provision.
I think, Mr. President, that there is really
no reasonable . objection to the provision as
inserted here. If the South concur in the
expediency of the prohibition of the African
slave trade, there is, at last, no insuperable
objection to having it made a part of the
Constitution any more than to having it in
the statutes of Congress. That such is the
opinion of the people of Virginia, I have no
reason to doubt.
The next section is that in which certain
sections of this adjustment and certain pro
visions of the Constitution of the United
States are rendered irrepcalable. It is as
" The first, third and fifth sections, together
with this section ot these amendments, and
the third paragraph of the sscond section of
the first article of the Constitution, and the
third paragraph ot "the second section of the
fourth article thereof, shall not be amended
or abolished without the consent of all -the
This renders irrevocable the provisions
found in the first, third and fifth sections of
these amendments, and further embraces the
clause in our present Constitution -vhich
bases taxation and representation on three-
fifths cf the slave population, and also the
provision 'for' the rendition of-fugitive
slaves. By the amendment, all these safe
guards are perpetuated, being, irrepealable
except with the consent of every. State in
ihe TTn. "
Mr. President, among other causes of ap
prehension which have, at various periods,
affected the public mind, not the least has
been one growing out of intimations within
the last year or two, from representative men
of the Republican party in the North, that
the time would come when slavery was to
cease entirely upon this continent, that, per
haps the child was now in life who would
witness the entire extinction of this institu
tion. It was natural to enquire, how is this
end to be brought about ? If it is to be
done, by what agencies is it to be effected t
They disclaim all intention to make assaults
upon the rights of slave owners within the
Slates; they disavow the use of all violence
or force. What is it 7 fubUc opinion, before
which this institution is to fall down! ..Moral
suasion; their pulpit -eloquence, if it could
deserve - that name their -anathemas and
denunciations rather, I - will sayl Are these
the moving power? Do these constitute the
machinery by which this end is threatened to
be brought upon as! Or, do these gentle
men look to the increase of free States to
such an aggregate uumber as to enable them
at some luture period, to change the funda
mental law of the land by the requisite ma
jority pointed out by that instrument itself !
Is that the mode; xnese are tne enquiries
to which we have been drawn by declarations
of purpose, such as those to . which I have
alluded. To remove this ground of appre
heosion, the section, now .before as is made to
declare that the section itself, with the other
sections therein enumerated, including mat
by which slavery is not to be touched tn tne
States, that in reference to slavery in the
District of Colambia, the dock-yards and
arsenals, the inter-State slave trade, the ren
dition ot fugitive slaves, and the represen-
taCion of three-fifths ot tne slave population,
all these provisions and guarantees referred
to here, are made irrepealable, bat upon the
consent of every State of this Union. The

; And here, I might paosd to enquire, wheth
er that section and that alone is not worth all
the effort which Virginia instituted, which
ended in the convocation of the representa
tives of twenty-one of the States in the city
of Washington.' and which has placed here
that section as assented to in that Confer
The 7th and last section of this profet is
that which relates to fugitive slaves, and
compensation for them : i i '.
"Congress shall provide by law that the
United States shall pay to the owner the full
value of his fugitive from labor, in all cases
where, the marshal or other officer whose duty
it was to arrest such fugitive, was prevented
from so doing by violence or intimidation
from mobs or riotous assemblages, or when,
after arrest, such fugitive was rescued by
like violence and intimidation, and the own
er thereby deprived of the same; and Con
gress shall provide by law for securing to
citizens of each State the privileges and im
munities of the several states."
That addendum, of which I shall speak
presently, formed no part of the original sec-
.. ..3 1 XI ' ' . .
tion as reported oy ue cummmee, out ob
tained its position here bv motions in the
Conference, of which I shall speak hereafter.
Now, Mr. President, in regard to this 7th
section, so far as it provides compensation to
the owner for fugitives Irom labor lost by
violence or intimidation, there seems to be
no objection. All agree that the owner should
be paid. The principal objection which I
bear made to this provision is, that it does
not secure the right of reimbursement to the
Government after payment of the value of
the slave, from the city or county where the
violence or intimidation has occurred, ana
with remedy over against the tort feasor, or
In the first place, I remark it is quite ap
parent that legislation to some extent will
be required to carry out and execute this
The legislation of Congress must provide
some mode of ascertaining the value of the
slave. There must be some judicial proceed
ing by which the value is to be ascertained.
The evidence upon which the claim is to be
allowed, and the manner of presenting such
evidence, the tribunal which is to hear the
evidence aud determine the claim, must be
provided by law. Congress, when providing
by legislation to carry out this amendment
of the Constitution, can also provide, by the
same act, the proper remedies against the
city or county, or against the individual
wrong doers, if it be deemed advisable to do
so. constitutional amendments do not go
into detail- The details are left to legisla
tion. It was so with that provision ot the
Constitution by wbicJ persons held to service
in one state fleeing into another are to be
rendered up. Congress had to pass a law to
carry out that organic provision. This is my
nrst answer to the objection.
Another objection made to the proposition
is, that it is payment out of the public treas
ury, and that the owner of the slave is thus
made in part to pay for his own property.
If the owner of a lost slave is to be paid at
all; it will be admitted. I presume, that he
should be paid by the Government. Wheth
er the Government is to be reimbursed or not
is another question. We would hardly send
the owner himself on the county or city
where the obstruction has occurred, or
against the perpetrators of the wrong. '
The argument that gentlemen use would
apply to many cases where payment is made
from the public treasury, and to which, as
citizens of the country, we contribute. By
the law of Virginia, if my own slave is con-
demand for telony, to capital punishment

Nashville, April 9tb, 1861.
Messrs. Editors In looking around for
a suitable person to represent us in this
Floaterial District, composed of the counties
of Davidson, Robertson, Cheatham and
Montgomery, at this critical moment of the
political affairs of our country, a crisis never
before witnessed in our glorious and prosper
ous Union, we have diligently sought f or
an individual who, as we believe, could
serve us most efficiently in the next Legisla
ture of Tennessee. We, after canvassing all
the names of our distinguised statesmen, do
suggest the name of the Hon. Cave Johnson
as probably the one for the crisis. We there
fore trust that he will be solicited by his fel
low-men to serve them in the next Legisla
ture, as a Representative from this District.
There is in our political republic at this time
a condition of affairs which requirss states
manship and character. UNION.

Diptheria, In the most virulent stages of this malig

the most successful results while thousands suc
cumbed to the violence of this disorder, not a single
decease occurred among those who used these reme

The Royal College of Surgeons awarded them the palm
of victory as the only antidote for this distemper, by
introducing them into the new edition of their phar-

DR. RICHARDSON'S SHERRY WINE BITTERS.
In 1808, Dr. Nathan Richardson, a physician residing
in South Reading, Mass., discovered, and proved in his
extensive practice in that place and neighboring towns,
the beneficial effects of tho medicine now given to the
world, as the Sherry Wine Bitters. The success of Dr.
Richardson's practice becoming heralded throughout
the New England States, his business so increased, that
he was compelled to relinquish the visiting system,
and establish offices in different parts of the State,
where, oa stated days, he met bis patients. - Sunday
was the only day that he could be found at home, and
many of the present inhabitants of South Reading will
well remember the throng of corrirges that always
surrounded his house on the Sabbath.
The present proprietor, Dr. S. O. Richardson, (sonar
th Dm. Mat baa Richardson,) a graduate of the
New Hampshire Medical College, where he received
his degrees with usual honor, and also a member of
the Medical Society of Boston, for the purpose of re
lieving his aged and honored parent from his arduous
duties, was induced to relinquish his valuable practice
in the city of Boston, to superintend the manufacture
of this medicine, as it required great skill and accuracy
in its preparing. - aprl-dlm

Washtxgton, April 6. An officer of the

would probably occur in Charleston harbor.
He says that the Federal Government, hav
ing, decided to .evacuate Fort. Sumter, was
about to send an -order cow in should be
done, bat General Beauregard and Governor
ficsens relused to accept the plan of evacua
tion. What order or plan was proposed was
not fully known. . It is understood; that the
Federal Government wanted to leave a small
force to protect the property of the United
States. This the Carolinians peremptorily re-
iusea to anow. iney demand an uncondi
tional surrender. These facts ;: were laid
before the President, who" decided,
that, nnless thiy at . once accept
ed tne order or plan, the t on would not be
evacuated, and when the ball is opened he
win DiocEaae every principal port in the
Confederate States, commencing with Cbarles-
leston and ending with the mouths of the
Mississippi. Be said that if an: attack was
made on Fort Sumter, an attempt would be
made to throw reinforcements into it. The
Government dont't expect to succeed, bat
means to make an effort. The Government
means to hold Fort Pickens at all hazards.

It is supposed that there is a sufficient
number of tt oops on Government vessels in
the neighborhood of Fort Pickens to re-in-
force it if it is not already done.
Private offers at i Dremium have been
made for five millions Treasury notes.

that reinforcements have been ordered to
Fort Sumter, accompanied by a squadron un

tifications, will be ready to . take the field
within 24 hours. The ultimatum, seize or
surrender, has not yet been sent to Major
Anderson, but with the supplies to-day he
was notified by General Beauregard that
they were the last which he would receive,
which is equivalent to a declaration of hos
tilities. This is positive. Troops have been
ordered to rendezvous at points remote from
Charleston, but within supporting distance,
to watch the movements ot the enemy. Gov
ernor Pickens was to-day inspecting the bat
teries, accompanied by his council and senior
officers. Bloodshed is inevitable. A formal
