THUESDAY; APRIL 11, 18CL- Forts Sumter aad Plestena.1 , . .To these two points the public eye is chief directed and the public ear tamed to see and bear the first demoaatration . of force to wards a settlement of our most oafortanate and calamitous inter-eectional ' troubles. They are the only two military positions of ' any importance within the ceeeded States. now held by the Federal Government. If blood shall Sow soon in the contest, it will be shed at one or the other of these points. - "When it does flow, neither side can determine absolutely where the stream shall terminate 1 neither can foresee the political and aoeuti results which is to ultimately crown the in dDient act of war. " It should therefore re- ; ceiye the matures consideration of the chief actors on both sides it should also receive the matnrest consideration of the people of both sections, who are to sustain by men and money the immediate consequences incipient act. of that To our mind war at present is unjustifiable. It has nothing to commend it to the Federal fJnvprnmpnt. certainlv. For. what can the : Federal Government gain by it? 19 it so in fatuated as to believe it can bring back the aocMled State under the sword? Does it expect to restore the Union through the in strumentalitv of gun-powder ? Does it sup pose the Border Slave States will be more firmly wedded to the Union by butchering . their brethren in svmDathy and interest South of them? Has a sectional majority deliberately arrived at the conclusion that a " sectional platform is to be vindicated as the ' i-nle nf onr oublic administration at the mouth of the cannon ? I it concluded that the authority of a government constituted nr! iriKintAined bv the voluntary consent of a free and intelligent people, is to be main tained by the power of war-ships and armies Is there an American born statesman so irre trievably mad ? Peace is Union, life, prosperity war is disunion, strife, dissolution, death. What ' are Sumter and Pickens in a question of such magnitude ? What can the Federal adminis tration gain by holding them for a few weeks or for a few months? Can it thereby enforce any law ? Can it collect any revenue ? Can it bring back the seceded States to the Union, and restore brotherhood and confraternity ? Can it benefit a partizan administration, or the citizens of the country ? Can the Federal Government, by holding these Forts over power the "Confederate States," and reduce them to the condition of subject provinces, if that be the policy ? Is any of these ends to be reached by holding Sumter and Pick ens ? Who is so obtuse as to believe it? The theory of the seceded States is that these forts belong to them, and that their oc cupation by an authority which they do not recognise, is an act of hostility in itself. This theory may be altogeth r false in point of fact, but there is no one so blind as not to know that these people who set it up and in dulge it will stand by it at all hazards and to the last extremity. It is said that to evacuate these forts would be cowardly and dishonorable. But why so? Would it be any greater exhibition of dishonor and cowardice than the failure to collect the revenue under the existing Federal tariff; We do not even attempt to collect the revenue in any of the ports in the seceded States ; and this would amount weekly to as much as the whole money value of Sumter and Pickens. Oar Federal theory contradicts the Secession theory, and makes the seceded States noth ing more nor less than rebels. It claims the revenues as well as the forts ; and our honor and our courage requires us to maintain the one as much as the other. It is just as much our duty under the Federal theory to go to Charleston and Pensacola and Mobile and New Orleans and to every other importing point in the seceded States, and take pos sesion of the Custom houses and collect the revenues accruing under our tariff, as it is to retain possession of Sumter and Pickens. We know that we could not collect the reve . nues in the Confederate States" without bloodshed, and we refrain from the effort. It is equally certain that these Forts cannot be long held without a resort to force, and even then it is probable they would fall under the attacks which the secessionists, it is known, are prepared to make upon them. What then is our duty as a matter of wisdom, s il.l r s a case, it is clear that the war will not be a naval one. It must be fought mainly on the land. Where then would be Sumter and . Pickens ? Tbey would be hundreds of miles from the seat of actual war. Why not, then, evacuate them ? But we have higher considerations for desiring the abandonment of these Forts and the maintenance of peace. As friends of the Union we cannot assent to any course of policy which we are confident can result in nothing but final and permanent disunion. That war would thus eventuate we can enter tain not the slighest doubt. Let the powers at Washington calculate well the conse quences. Let them hesitate long before con tnbuung in anywise to the permanent over throw oi that government which they are so eager to nphold.

He returned to Washington. , Soldier Transferred. We publish this week the Convention Or dinance transferring the Volunteer force of the State of Mississippi to the Confederate States. ' Much has been said of the usurpa tion of power by the Conventions of the States.bat this is surely the most intolera ble stretch of power yet assumed by any. In Mississippi the Volunteer forces were or ganized at $16 per month pay, and were not . to be kept out of the State over ten days. All of these provisions were read to the sol diery before they were mustered into service. Now the Convention assumes to transfer them, without their consent, . to tbe Confederate army at $11 per month, and liable to be sent anywhere lor the full term ol their enlist ment. .- When tbe people ask why tbey have not been allowed to decide upon Secession; upon " - - vuxucia, uiuu uic Constitution of their country, they are an swered by an ominous silence that tbey have ceased to be a power in the realm. . The citi zen soldiery are ensnared into the serviee of the State under fair arrangements, when without their consent they are transferred, like sheep, to another and a different service with out being allowed to be a party to the con tract. -Can these things be and not be cause of wonder?" - ; . ; J Will not the people soon begin to dlscow whether or not it is not better to call aa en lightened Prince, tc supreme power, than at, low the - tyranny and despotism of a body claiming to be the SUte!

Brandon addressed the meeting with one of his strong and stirring speeches, during the delivery of which, the Committee on resolutions re'urned, and the Major yielded the stand. The Committee thought tneir Chairman, KB. Crockarell, presented their Preamble and resolutions : , Whereas, We have assembled in a time of great national distrust, wnen tne minus oi patriots are troubled as to the future, when the very fabric of our Government seems to be crumbling to pieces, and the only hope of its preservation rests in tne honesty ana virtue of the people, when old questions daily assnme new places, and fresh issues are raised tor tne people to meet anu Beiue; Therefore Resolved. That, while we deny the right of secession, except as a revolutionary right, because it cannot exist without at once de stroying all faith in the strength, or even existence of any government between sepa rate State sovereignties ; ana wniie we especially obj-.-ct to the policy of separate State action, ny which the interests of one community are selfishly made to override the interests of sistei communities, equally involved perhaps in tbe result of such action; and while for ourselves, if immediately in terested, we sbonld Drotest to the last azainst I the manner in which the sovereignty of tha people in the so-called Confederate States has, in tbe most important concerns of gov ernment, been disregarded by their Conven tions and Congress. Still we hold, that the evils of a war oetween brothers would far outweigh any and all such considerations, and we earnestly wish that our former brethren may be allowed to try their experi ment in peace; and with this view every reasonable concession should be made to their demand?. Resolved, That we confidently indulge the belief that success will crown tbe efforts of good men in all parts of our country, who are now laboring to effect such modifications of our Federal Constitution, as will secure to every section just and equal rights, remove ihe vexed question of African slavery iiom National politics, and satisfy the minds of all those not obstinately bent on being dis satisfied. Resolved, That we accept the conflict offer ed to us by the leaders of the disunion party in this State, and promise them that the success of February shall be strengthened and con firmed by the victory of the approaching Au gust election, Resolved, That in Cave Johnson of Mont gomery, we acknowledge tbe leader, whose tried honesty, long experience, political sa gacity, and steadlast patriotism, peculiarly tit him to head the Union ticket as candidate for Governor of Tennessee in this important crisis : and tbat our delegates to tbe State Convention be instructed to exhaust all hon orable means to secure his nomination, but if they are not successful we will abide by and support the nomination by the State Convention of any good Union mitn. Resolved, That a meeting of the Union party of Stewart County be held in the town of Do ver, on the 1st Monday in May, to nominate a candidate to represent it in the next Legisla ture, and to appoint delegates to the Clarks ville Congressional and Senatorial Conven tion, time to be hereafter designated. Resolved, Tbat the Clarksville Chronicle, tbe Clarksville Jeffersonian tbe Nashville Democrat, Banner and Patriot, be requested to publish tbe proceedings of this meeting. Tbe preamble and . resolutions were put upon their passage and carried. The Com mittee to select delegates then made the fol lowing report : Whereas, The Union men of Tennessee by common consent have designated the second day of May next as the time, and the city of Nashville as the place, for holding a Con vention to nominate some suitable Union man as a candidate for Governor of tbe State of Tennessee for the ensuing term, therefore Resolved, That we appoint the following persons delegates to .said Convention, viz: 1st District Dr. C.

Two gentlemen, well known as warm sup- porters of the effort to hurry Tennessee out of tbe Union at the recent February election, seemed anxious to participate in the meet ing, and by tbe c aurtesy oi the meeting were allowed to do so.' Their attempt to place the Union party on their demolished seces sion platform was however most signally re buked by Sam. Rice, the- Hon.' Chairman, and Major N.TJrandon. After allowing the two gentlemen, by thei indecent exhibition, to do all the damage that lay in their power to themselves and their cause, the meeting adjourned. ; " : ' '. - ; ) . It is a pleasure to add that their effort to disturb the meeting was not seconded by the reflecting membert of. their party. f ; U v Jaxes Woods, &e. Rhode Island Election. We have alreadystated tbat the Conserva tives of Rhode Island succeeded in carrying that State' against the Republicans at tbe late election on Wednesday last. They elec ted a Governor and other State officers, as well as the two Representatives in Congress to'which the State is- iendiied-UThe Provi-! deuce Journal of the 3rd.,baa an. article on the results of the election, from which we extract the following as showing the ;posl- tion of the opposing parties in tbe contest : Tbe deep Interest lelt in tne recent elec tion was testified by - tbe immenseggregate vote which was polled, r The roads in many tarts of the State were so blocked with snow tbat they were almost impassable, and yet over 22,000 votes were polled. Tne number exceeds by more than two thousand that of the vote at the Presidential election, and falls short of that unparalleled election of last soring by only about one thousand. " The majority of Mr. Sheffield in this city turned the ccales against Mr. Robinson, who led his competitor by more than two hundred in the rest of the district. It will be observ ed, too, that in several towns in the western district Mr. Bray ton runs well ahead of his ticket. The aggregate majority against onr Congressmen is fcbl. " Our friends abroad will err if they inter pret the result of this election as a professed abandonment of the Administration. Both tbe parties in the late contest explicitly avowed in the resolutions of their Conven tions their approval of the Inaugural and their intention to support the Administration Tbe Republican Convention thought that the proper way to eive tbat support was to act through tbe old Republican organization, and in favor of tbe election of Mr. Smith, Mr, Robinson and Mr. Brayton. But a portion of the party which sustained Mr. Lincoln thought it best to act through tbe coalition which was effected with tbe Democrats and in favor of Mr. Sprague, Mr. Sheffield and Mr. Browne. But through the whole canvass their speakers and their papers have claimed in the most unequivocal and emphatic lan guage that their position was one of friend ship, and not of hostility to tbe Administra tion. On no other basis would tbey nave ventured upon the struggle, and if tbey as sume an attitude of opposition to the Ad ministration tbey will fail to carry out the principles on which they were sustained by a large number of their supporters."

The Beginning op the Enp. The orders which some dispatches and accounts have been anticipating for several days, have now been issued, for the suspension of all sup plies between Fort Sumter and the city. This step is not taken too soon, but we believe of the use and improvement we have made bv tbe delay, we cannot say with some tbat it was deferred too long. There Is reason for believeing that the reports of orders from Washington for evacuation have only been designed to deceive and beguile. . Fortunate ly, they nave tailed in that, so far as vigi lance and preparations on the part of -the State have beeu concerned. " The complications and difficulties growing; out of tbe occupation of Fort Sumter, were caused by an act of Major Anderson, on his own responsibility and without specific or ders. It seems to be tbe determination of the powers of the Government tbat rule at Washington, to leave to tbe eame discretion, and to inaividual responsibility, the settle ment of this question. We shall soon learn how be will decide under this grave alterna tive. All eons of tbe South must and will ap prove tbe step wnicn nas been taken after lone and unappreciated forbearance. Until fur ther orders from Montgomery, the usual mail facilities will be continued. Major Anderson, on receiving the official notice from Gen. Beauregard's messenger, intimated tbat be would forward his reply by nine o'clock this morning. He stated. Ijw- ever, that he had anticipated the order, for some time. This, although an important step, does not necessarily, inaugurate .hostilities. It will be remembered. that communication between Fort Sumter and the city, for two weeks af ter the removal of Major Anderson to Fort Snmter was withheld from tbe garrison, and no supplies allowed to be furnished. Iu de ference to a request of Southern Senators and Representatives, friendly relations were again restored, and Major Anderson permit ted to purchase and receive bis daily market supplies. It is said tbat the garrison have been obliged, for tbe last few days, to use some of the flooring for fuel. Chas. Courier, biA. New Orleans Ilace-netalrle Course. - -: 8KVKNTH BAT."

The circnmslances attending th2 deposi tion of Sam Houston as Governor of Texas, were quite dramatic, and in some respects ludicrous and comical. ; The Convention of Texas, called by tbe loud voice of tbe people against the denunciations and opposition of Gov. Houston, passed the act of secetsion, and accepted and ratified the Constitution of the Confederate States, prescribed - form of oath to be taken bv the Slate officer. This oath included a renunciation of all allegiance to all foreign nower., and - cspecsUr to tbe Government of the United States, and a deo- A Uration of fidelty to tbn Constitution of tbe Confederate Slates. When the oath was pro posed to (iov. Houston, be peremptorily re-. fused to take it : whereupon the Convention declared the office of Governor vacant, and Lieut. Gov. Clark, under the Constitution having taken tbe prescribed oalb. succeeded to the office. Gov. Clark was not Blow in en tering upon the Gubernatorial functions, and proceeding to the Governor's office, as sumed tbe chair and entered upon the duties or tne office. ISj and by,the deposed Governor came hobbling to bis office old Sam's can Jacinto wound bavins broken out afresh, as it alwavs does on occasions of political trial. Perceiving Gov. Clark occupying tbe chair Old Sam addressed him : " Well, Governor Clark," giving great cm phasis to the title ; "you are an early riser.1 Yes, General," replied tbe Governor with a greater stress upon the military title of his predecessor. w I am illustrating the old maxim, the early bird leathers the worm.' " Well, Gov. Clark, I hope you will find it an easier seat than I have found it." " I'll try to make it so, General, by con forming to the clearly expressed will of the people ot Texas." The General, having brought a large lunch basket with him, proceeded to put np numer ous little articles of private property, and to stow them away very carefully. Catching his foot in a hole in tbe carpet and stumbling, tbe General suggested to Gov. Clark tbat tbe new Government ought to afford a new car pet for the Governor's office, whereupon the Governor remarked tbat the Executive of Texas could get along very well without a carpet. ' Approaching tbe wasbstand,' the General called the attention of Gov. Clark to two pieces of soap one, tbe Castile soap, was his own private property; and the other, a perfumed article, was tne property ot tne State, and added, 'Governor, your hands will require the very frequent use of this cleansing article;" whereupon Gov. Clark, pointing to the washbowl, which was full of very black and dirty water, remarked: "Gen eral, I suppose tbat is tbe bowl in which you washed your hands before leaving the office. Having gathered up all bis duds, old bam made a little farewell spte:b, very mucb in tbe 6tyle of Cardinal Woolsey, declaring his conviction tbat, as in tbe past, the time would come when Texas would call him from his retirement, and hoped Gov. Clark would be able to give aa good an account of bis stewardship as be could now render. Halt ing at the door, the General made a profound bow, and with an air of elaborate dignity said, ''Good day. Governor Clark." "Good day, General Houston," was the Governor's response. And thus tbe "Hero of Jacinto" concluded his political career! f, O. Delta. The Flight of Fugitives from the City of Chicago. (From the Chicago Post Editorial, of Saturday. NEGROES EMIGRATING. For some months past, the agent of the Haytien Government in this city, H. Ford Douglas, has been laboring to convince the Africans in Chicago, that it would be for their interest to emigrate to Hayti. But ti e agent of the Haytien Government has met with rather poor success. Very few Africans have emigrated to Hayti. the great major ity of them have preferred to stay in Chicago, where they have so long enjoyed the glorious blessings of liberty and economy, with no United States Marshal active enough to mo lest or make them afraid. Why should they change, especially as the change about to take place in the powers above them were to be in their lavor. But the exodus which th i agent of the Hay tien Government could not produce in the direction of Hayti has suddenly set in with a rush toward Canada. Since tbe arrest of fu gitive slaves by tbe U. S. Marshal, tbe de parture of Africans to Her Mejesty s Ameri can dominions has been remarakbly act:ve. Two or three hundred have already left, and more are going. Every train on the Michigan Central railway that has left this city since Tuesday last, bss carried away from fifteen to a hundred. The large number of these emigrants serves to show something of tbe magnitude of this class of negroes tbat Chicago has harbored. Their, departure will be a benefit to the city in many ways. It will benefit the free negroes by leaving open to them tbe occu pations previously filled by the runaways. It will benefit tbe poor white laborers in the same way. And it will rid tbe city of a bad name as tne general rendezvous ot wis ciass or persons. Tbe advice that John wentworth gives to the Bfugitive slaves in Chicago is the very best that could be given under tbe circum stances. If tbey have any respect for the law, let then return to their masters ; if they havn't, let them " make tracks " tor Canada. Chicago is a bad place for them. OBITUARY.

We have known yon from the earliest dawn of your, infancy. . We have watched you through -all the shifting scenes of life; our affect ion and love for each other has never been disturbed. We have gone with you to the very por tals of another world. You have gone down to an early but an honored grave; and it is an unspeakable pleasure to us to know that the poison from the tongue of Envy and Detraction has nover rested upon you. We do net mourn thee, cousin, as those wno nave no hope. We watched thee closely, with agonizing heart and firmly pressed hand, and saw thee proudly pa?s the confines of Time, giving the strongest as surances to your sorrowing friends that au was well with you. No murmur of regret ever passed from your lips In your own behalf, when the sad tale was told to you of your speedy dissolution, by that dear friend whose ministrations to you, in your last hours, wcremore divine than human when she, with words of inspiration, imparted to you the necessity of an early preparation for the change so soon to take place. None was thought necessary by you you were fully prepared, rely ing implictly on the goodness and mercy of your God; but the deepest anxiety was manifested and expressed by you, in behalf an aged mother, and of your "darling," whose heart was soon to be made so desolate he to whom you, in your early maiden hood, gave so freely your unboaght love and affections he with whom you had hand in hand made the voy age of life, ministering with unwavering devotion to all his wants and wishes. Yes, he it was for whom you manifested such an agony of mind at the Bad sep aration that wag so soon to coma upon you. Yes, the heart of your "darling" has now been made desolate Indeed. Is there anything that human minds can de vise that can possibly assuage its grief ? Can he ever forget the unwavering devotion of her who was so long the beloved wifo of his bosom 1 Can it be possi ble that ere the flowers can blossom and wither upon your grave, that your "darling" can ever be led by the "Syren's Song" to forget your love and affection for him 7 No, his proud and manly spirit precludes the possibility of such a thought. Cherish then a fond remembrance of your beloved one, who has been so ruthlessly snatched from yoa, keep green upon yeur memory a recollection of her many virtues, and her .undying lore for you. Love and respect her name and memory, and God, in his own good and appointed time, will bind np your now broken and disconsolate heart. .Your casket has been opened and the brigbest Jewel that ever graced man's bosom taken from you.
