Not a question c.u be eulertaiced of the tUgrunt and
pal{ a! !e invasion of the Constitution and Saw, by the
Northern President, in exercising the power of calling
forth the mi.iiia and inaugurating war. The right to call
out the mil.iia is expressly confined to CW/cm*—and
the wuoie war-uir.king power is res'ricted to the same
body. Even that branch of the Federal liovernment
lias co authoii’y to make war upon any State of the Con
federacy. The ac'ior, then, of the Executive is a grot
usn'-pstior, and should receive the support of co law
anding and lib? rtv-'ovi'" cit'x‘tt of the Republic. So
far from it, it should meet the stern reprobation and im
p acabie boet:.;ty of the whole country. Officers in the
army and n ivy should treat it a? a nullity, and refuse to
obey atv or<h r ernara'.iug from the usurper. We hope
the Virginia Convention will put forth an appeal to all
her own sons engaged in the public service, and to all
others, who love liberty and the Constitution of the land,
to resist this usurpation by cTerv means in their power.
Let a!!, who command n ips or torts, instead of throw
ing up tbeir commissions, bring their vessels and strong
h T- cv r to the side of liberty and law. The usurpa
tion should be resisted at t verv point and by every ex
peuient that frec":«*n car. employ. Virginia's voice, loudly
proclaimed in behalf of this policy, would exert great
intf ;rncc. She should al-o appeal to her sons, wherever
they be, on lar i or sea, and to all her gallant dtsccn
d .at* in Kentucky,Tcnncsnee, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and
il sonn, to rally around her in this great b ’ht for free
Anglo-Saxon freedom, the freedom onr ancestors
b'Ougtit from England, and which was hallowed by the
K volution, is at suk ■*. The atrocious war inaugurated
bv Lincoln is designed for its destruction. If that war
be successful, nothing will survive of the Republic but
an intolerable mihtarv despoil-m.
We do not underrate the ditUcultles and dangers that
environ us. We du'.v app ec a e the Tast resources of
tha North'ra horde—the advantages they have gained
by the tcizu'e of tha com non nary and army, the com
mon arsenal a«J fortj aud monitions of war. We ru e
at their prop or value llv-ir skill and valor in war. II:
w. do uot oe piir. In such x ca .so there is no tu.’h word
as despair. A brav. and free people, fighting for their
lloerty, their homes a: d hearths, ca- not fail to conquer.
But every human effort tn-tst be made ; every man able
to boar an arm, w ithin the Commonwealth, must master,
and master quickly, f >r the conflict. There is rot a mo
ment to lose. The enemy is already at our borders. A!

Credit and Klilpe*
The Abolition papers are chocking over the idea,
that the Confederate Stab's cannot borrow a dollar in
Europe or America. ThU would be sad, if true ; and
vet it would not be worse than the condition of the Thir
teen Colonies, when they *»vcred their connection with
fl-eat Britain. They not only could borrow nothing
from abroad—but had nothing at home, luckily,the Con
led, rate S;at- s are not reduced to such straits. II tiiev
have no credit in New York or Loudon, they happen to
have abundant means for present uses within themselves,
i Their whole loan of fifteen mililioas has been taken in
New Orleans. Kiug Colton will he very apt to command
- ecu* as loi g as Massachusetts and Lancashire have any
ia their fobs.
We notice, slso, In the same papers an exultant toce
I it the poverty of the South in steamers and vessels of
I war. This is well-founded. The common Government
ha* robbed us of cur share ot the common property—
J and we must endure the spoliation as well as we can.
Bat it is to be observed that naval superiority docs not
i always carry with it superiority on land. The Athe
ifans swept the .Kgean, and yet were overthrown by the
I Liocdemoaiuns. Napoleon did not dare to launch a
I h hing smack on the oc*an—such was England s rule ol
I the waves—and vet he conquered most of the continent
of Europe. In our Revolutionary struggle, at the be
j ginning, we scarcely had a ship; ye; we did not tail to
mike good oe.r Independence. What h > ■ even, may be.
hsrtlrern }j«*i*tl*n;*nt.
The sentiment which pervades the Northern Republi
can press is most ferocious towards the South. Total
extermination Is the mildest fate which the most mode*
.ate of them will allow to the “rob Is and trai ors." If
•.he whole people cf Virginia could read these papers,
there is not a man of them, who would not feel that our
safe'y Jopcnds entirely upon ourselves.
Tae tone of the conservative press, too, has uadcr
goae a very marked change. Most ol them have caved
.□—not exactly to approbat on of the war policy of the
r —but to in idaMw, which amounts to tbs
lime thin,', of the necessity of sustaining the Govern
ment.
We htve been sati ii*d fora good while, that all

THE WAR SPIRIT ABROAD.
Account* of it* excitement produced by the news from
Charleston continue to pour in upon us from every sec
tion of the country. The “war spirit” seems fully arous
ed, both at the North aud the South. The Governor of
Pennsylvania is reported to have given nasnrnnco that ho
could march one hundred thousand meu into Washington
within twenty-four hours. The Governor# of New T ork,
Massachusetts, Ohio and other free State# are also prom
ising the aid of lorraidablo armies. Volunteers arc daily
leaving Alabama, M ssissippi and other seceded 8tates
fur Pensacola. To show tbe “war spirit” abroad, we give
some extracts from our exchanges:
THE FEELING IN PHILADELPHIA.
The Philadelphia papers have loDg accounts of the ex
citement in that city on Saturday and Sunday. Of tbe
movement* among the military, the ledger save:
Military Hall, Third street, near Green, was, on Satur
day evening, the scene of much exoiteinent. The fall is
the headquarters (or military men generally, and the ex
citement ol Saturday, coupled with the advertisement call
ing a meeting of the officers of the Washington brigade,
brought a crowd to the building in the evening.
The officers of the first regiment of the Washington
brigade—a brigade formed several weeks since for imme
diate servic —held a meetiug for consultation. General
Small announced that in all probability tbe biigade would
soon be ca'led upon to take the fi- Id. He had visited
Washington and tendered the brigade to Gen. Cameron,
aud the tender was accepted, (ten. Cameron inquired
what time the brigado would require to be ready, and
upon his replying in about ten days, the Secretary of
War wished to know if five days’notice would not be
sufficient, and Gen. Small respouded that it would be
time enough, provided the uniforms and arms could be
got in readiness. To this Gen. Cameron replied that the
brigade n 'ed not be uneasy on that score, as the govern
ment would attend to those matters. Gen. Small th re
fore advised the company cap’.aius to open their armo
ries for nightly drills during all of next week, and en
deavor to till up the muster rolls. The second regiment,
which is composed of Germans, is filled up, ready for ser
vice. Tbe first regimeut is nearly liiied, and both regi
ment? expect to be ready to move by the close of
the week The Montgomery Artillerists have been ac
tively engaged during the past few weeks in recruiting
men, with a view to being ready when called upon by the
governmont. About one hundred have been enrolled,
and it is c jntcuiplated to form a battalliou, which is to be
under command of M *jor Harvey.
THE EFFECT IS NEW TORE.
In New York City the wildest excitement prevailed
throughout Saturday and Sunday. The Herald says:
The first impulse on Saturday eveuiog was to doubt
the news. Some thought that it was a mere invention
to get up an excitement iu the city. A few fixed the
imposition on the newsboys, aud went so far as to offer
free bets that tbe whole thing would be contradicted
the next morning. But slowly aud reluctantly the full
force of the truth began to break upon tneu’s minds that
•here was too much reason to believe the dispatches;
end, however, new iling they were to admit tha* the
Temple of Jauus was shut at length, and that from it-*
portentous ga*es “gi im-vieaged war, with wrinkled front,”
had gone fotth with buckh r and spear, and fire and
word, the solid fact, with stubborn earnest!)* as, drove
out very futile ccnj ‘dura and proclaimed the desolatiug
, r. sence of the bloody genius of fratricidal war.
T e feeling at the New York Custom House is thus
spoken of:
Speculations were mad < by the various parties as to the
Ki>emd- that could b ■ adopted to iuvsde N. York,
and while hey were discussing tins kuotiy question a
penon entered tli. building with the re[>ort that the Mar
ne Lane Had been sunk in Charleston harbor. Ex
p:e«tioL of sympathy were then uttered with regard to
Japiain John Faunce* for all believed, if the vessel had
e down, be bad certainly gone dox-n with it. The
words “ poor Faunce ” could be heard almost at every
step.
The inerclian’s and brokers, as they transacted the
:mall amouu: of business they bad to do, shook their
heads as they 'alked over the nears. Tuero were uo dis
putes about tariff—it was all war.
TllK EFFECT IS IIOSTOS.
The BosUn Traveler (Republican) of Saturday evening

Rev. Henrv Ward Brother preacl ed a war sermon in
Brooklyn oa Sunday. Of eour-e (he South and slavery
were denounced. Here are a few extrao's from his Ber
man :
■‘We mu^t draw the lines close. Let men ‘ake aid s
one wav or the other; let ever- man thow his hand; we
want no in:dd!o men, no shufflers; ail must now stand
each for himself on this great question. He who is not
with ns a id lor ns is ag linst us. Great men have spoken
on this subject eloquently and feelingly, but the guns of
stum'er have spoken more than them all. As for mo, 1
am detfrai ned. 1’1 hive no commerce nor dealings
henceforth with a ice o liberty No man shall come to
tny house, or receive niv ho -pitality, or break my bread,
or ■•hire my roof, who has feelings of hostility to liberty,
m less he comes ag i converted sii:m:r, and I shall treat
any and every one who com* in mv wav, who is raale to
hi- cou .try aud the hour wo live in, as a traitor, for such
he is.
Lei thiil nat'.er be se'tled no*. L?t it never come up
again. It war must come, let us meet it; it is better to
brave it thoroughly note ; to brave, if mcessarv, a pro
tracted war, so that it is a dual one, than for twenty years
■o come lie troubled with an intermit i >nt breaking out at
every period It has got to be settled one WAT or the
Other. The N irth has the population, the means and the
courage—fer there is no such breadth of courage at the
So :th »< there is at th” North. “The Northern men,’’
said that illustrious general—that tried piiriot—that no
ble man—Uou. Scott, “»re usr4 to get into a fight, but
most terrib’e fellows when once iu.” (Applause, sup
pr.-sad.) The North abhors war, but If it euleis upon a
contest, lean wish its detractors no more punishment
th m that they stand in the racks of their opponents.
Yesterday ramming affairs looked blue enough; but last
night we si pt peaceably, believing that all was wJl —
Again this morning we hear of the striking of our dig,
and this eveuiug doubts were thrown upon the wisdom
ol the action ot that gillant soldier, Anderson. I eaine
hi'her with a s r.-owtul heart, sad aud somewhat cast
uow: ; but siucc l reached ibis desk a dispatch has been
handed me, coming through the bands of one of our
country's most illu-triom delcuders, saying that “£gmter
is reinforced, acJ Moultrie is the fort which lies iu ruing."
[To describe the scene which ensued, says the Times,
surpasses our ability—it beggar* description—cheers,
hu/zas, and shouts made the building ljng—the waving
of htu and handkerchiefs, and the simultaneous uprising
of man? bundieds of people made the scene a most re
markable one. Mr. Beecher was, of course, wrongfully
informed ]
LETTER FROM GOV. LETCHER—RUMORED BE
61GNATION OF GEN. SCOTT LMFOUNDED.
WasaiKOrow, April 15.—Governor Letcher, of Va ,
in a private l.-tter to a friend iu Washington last week,
.-ays he adheres to hk opinions, formerly expressed, in
favor of a central coufederaey. If, however, there shall
be a further disruption, the will of Virginia, if she act
othe-wise, shall be the rule cf his conduct. Any sacri
tic ■ she r. quires will be made by him, and if troubles
come hi will take b!* share of them.
A lenort was put iu circulation this morning that
Lieut Geo. Scott had resigned, but meanwhile he was
engage 1 with the Secretary of War and Adjutant Gene
ral Ttomas.
‘‘Fort Scktir SiRaxsoxam ux a Traitor.”—Under
tfffi. head the New York Courier and Enquirer (Republi
can) of Honda; makes the following infamous charges
against the gallant but unsuccessful defeuder of Fort
Sumter:
"Sumter has fallen—surrendered, we fear, by a traitor;
and that traitor Major Robert Anderson. This is harsh
language; but it is the language of truth demanded by
what appears to be the grossest act of treason ever per
petrated in this or any other country. The treason
of Twiggs is admitted by all to have exceeded that of
Benedict Arnold; but the names of both Arnold and
Twiggs will sink into insignificance—indeed, are almost
rendered respectable, when compared with the more
damning infamy which, from present appearances, must
forever attach to that of Robert Anderson.
"The circumstances of this abominable treason are so
palpable and transparent, that no man who reads them
can hesitate in arriving at the conclusion that Anderson
arranged with Beauregard for the surrender of Sumter,
before he was assaulted; that the defence was but a
sham; and that it was deemed important the surrender
should take place before relief could be afforded by the
government licet, hourly expteted to arrive with troop ,
provisions and munitions of war.”
The Courier produces, in substantiation of its charges
against Mfjor Anderson, a letter said to have been writ
ten by one of his officers—Capt. Doubleday. The lat
ter declared that at the time of the approach of the Star
of the West, he begged Major A to permit him to tire
on the Morris battery, but the Major peremptorily re
fused to let him lire, on the plea that he would not fire
until Fort Sumter was fired upon. Capt. D., it is al
leged, further declared that all Msjor Anderson’s sym
pathies were wiih the rebels, and that no l»ta that vom
of his wife’s brothers, sons of the late General Clinch,
were iu the rebel array, and that the Major did not coi -
ceal the fact that in no event would be, once released
from his then awkward position, bear arms against the
South, but would either resigD or ask lor a furlough to
visit Europe.
