THE RICHMOND WHIG
THIRD LETTER FROM MR RUSSEL TO T1IE LON
DON TIMES.
WasniNuroN, April 5.
One month and one day have elapsed since Mr. Lin
coln and li-H Cabiue . were installed at Washington.—
l.oi g previous to their axeasiou to power, or rather tf
c Hite, the revolution of the South had arsume-l the as
pect of an independent Government. When the new ad
ministration tried to direct the horses’ heads they found
the reins were cut, and all they could do w.is to sit or
the State coach and take their chance of falling in a soft
place, or ol he fiery steeds coming to a standstill from
exhaustion. A month ago and the State Treasury was
nearly exhausted; only so ne ilaVO/KKI was Ur booming
to meet demands and requirements tour times a* large.
Ti e navy was scattered til over the world at stations by
no means readily accessible; the aimv posted along fron
tier lines, between which and the Northern States wa*
interposed the expanse of the Southern Confederation ;
thu officers d -ullectcd to (he Govtrnuient, or at all
evt nts so well allected to their individual overign States
as to feel indisposed to serve the United Suites; the
whole machinery of government in the hands ol the
revolutionary leaders; every trace of Federal existence
ciased in the South, wiped away by acts which, unless
w ped away by successful revolt, would be called treas
onable, or by force or s'.ratugvm ; and only two forts held
on the so-aboard, weakly garrisoned, and unhappily situ
ati d with retereuen to operations of relief. In addi
tion to these souices of weakness came the confusion
and apprehension caused bv uivije-d counsels, want
of cohesion, the disorders of a violent national con
test, mistiest of adequate support, and, above all, lb*
imperious necessities ol the place seek* is, whose impor
tunate requisitions distracted the attention of the Gov
ernment lioiu the more important butineas which pro
seined itself for adjustment. It was, if course, nccei
sary to fill the posts which were oocupicd by enemies
wiih men devoted to the interests ol a Government
which could little block any indifference or treaebt rous
tendencies on the part of its subordinates. Hut had the
Administration been as strong in all respect* as any U.
Stites Government ever could, or can hop* to be, in
reference to »ueli emergencies a* tho present, it really
could have done little, except precipitate a civil war, in
which the Rordcr States would have arranged tin mselves
by the side of the Cotton State's. A ooimidcrab e por
tion of the North would have been hostile to coercion
-mil the theories which have been propounded w ith much
ipparout approbation re p cting ttieactuil Uses ol Gov
rnn-.ent, its powers a J jurisiiioti »n, show that European
dot trines on such points arc i ot at all accepted by
statesmen, politicians, and jurists in North America.
V\ itfinut ibe means of cnijrcing an authority which
iany ol it* own u Hi. rents, i n 1 most of the neutral par
ties, denVd to it, Mr. Lincoln's aun iaislration ti .Js itself
jailed upon to propound a pjlicv and -o proceed t j vig
orous action. Tne demand is scarcely reasonable. The
poiicv ol such men suddenly lifted to ihe head ol ulfiiri*,
shich they cannot attetnpt to guide, must be to wa t
iiid w itch, and tlnir action must be simply tentative, as
they have no power to put forth, with moderate hope of
success, any aggressive force.
LSj satisfied of this—tin United Slates Government
will sire up no power or po.-a.t.-ion which it has at pre
sent got. By us voluntary act it will surrender nothing
whatever No raittcrwhit repor g may appc.r in the
paper;', or iu letters, distru-t Hum if they would lead
yuu to believe tba( M-. Lincoln is preparing either to
abandon whit be has uow, or to recover thu which he
has not.
The Uni tod 8t»te* Government is in an att'tude of pro
les'; it cannot strike an olleneive blow. But if any at
tach is made upon it, tbe Government hopes that it will
tie strengthened by tbe indignation of the North and
West to such an extent that it can not ouiv rej'.o! the
aggression, but possibly give a stimulus *a a great reac
tion in its favor.
On these principles f ort Sumter and i’ort Pickens are
held They are claimed as federal lorircsses. Ttc s.an
and Stripes still tha: over them. Whatever may belaid
to the contrary, they ti ill remain there till they ate re
moved by the action of ths Confederate States. Tha
Commissioners of Mr. J.fl'eraon Davis's government
"have r.a.-on to say that if any attempt be made to throw
r ioforceiiients into Fort Pickens, unless they receive pre
vious notice of it as promised, it will bo a breich o’'good
faith.” From al! i can learn, no iotcution of stiength
enirg the fort is at present enti rtaiued, but it may bo
doubled if tbe attempt would not hr made should at.y
favor&tle opportunity of doing so present it.-elf. All
“the movements of troop-,” of which you will see ac
counts, are propter*'ions against—not for—Sggrersian.—
At most they mm. nut to ti e march of a f-w oi mpanies
aud guns to vat tons foils, uu«r -11 but uud< f- rtd I. Fort
Washington, of which I ahull have a few words to say
hereafter, was til! late' v hi l l by a very ina*:* qua eloiee.
As a m ii.bcr of the Cabiuit said to m , “I could lave
liken it last week with a lit:l ■ wi.ok y, ’ that p -rent ar
tillerv being applied to ti e weak di fences of the aged
Irish artilleryman who constituted “die garrison.”
The ‘ formidable military force concentrated iu W: sit
ing on,” of w hich you may read in the American jour
nals, consists of about 7-“* men of all a ms » lar as
I can s*e, and four brass field g'.’.ua. There is a good
ileal of drumming, fifing, marching, and music going ou
daily. I look ou and see a small band iu gray uniform,
.t mu: II body of men iu sombte uniforms, varying (roar
l.'i to 80, tank aud file, armed, however, with excellent
r.fles, and a very la'ge standard ; pass by, and Uc ,t da/
I read ti at sucii and such a company h * parade, and
“attracted much admiration by tn.fr efti •ien* and sol
fierii aipearaucc wild'the matiurr iu which," A- But
these military cotiipsuies luve no intentiou ol lighting
for the Government. Their sympathies are quite de
termined.
Formidable as the would he :a ^/uaJirng in the
opeu oountrv they wb. 'd he ol comparatively little use
against .vylilav troopa at the outsi t of the contest, as
they have never learned to act together, and do not u.~
pire to lortu c-vm hattallious. But their exi.-te oe indi
cates the st'otig military tendencies of the people, and
the danger ol doing anything tiiat might turu them
against the Guv eminent. Mr. Lincoln has r. > power o
make war against the South: V.eCn gi a, done could
give it to him ; and li ft ii not liirely to bS given, becau «
Gonqrt-s will i.ot be Assembled before tha usual time
anles under thy pressure (if nn impel ions necessity.
Why, then, hold these foils at all!’ Wry not give
thorn up? Why not withdraw the garrisons, strike the
flig, ami cease to keen up a useless source of irrit;;;iut;
in the midst of the H*““!',trn Confederation V Vie an
swer to these questions is : Tbese fo.itaa.c Federal prop
erty. Tao Government thM not acknowledge the ex
istence of ,uy right on the part of tire people of the
Htatcfi to seiae them as appertaining to the individual
States, The forts ate protests against the acts of vio
lence to which the Federal authority has yit ldn\ ei-a

as tlu v arc, on wliicli tbe Federal Government t an rest
its resistance to toe v\*■<*•> of *bo Southern Coofcdera
tmu to be acknowledged as &u independent Republic. If
they were surrentiored without attack,or without the ex
istence of any pressure arising Irom the refund of the
Southern authorities to permit.them to etsupplhs which
is an act of war, the case of thy United States Govern
ment would be, *Jje/ cou.idor, materia Jy weaken d. it it
be „L.er<red that these foiL- Lave no s rategio value, it
mav readily be replieil that their political value is very
great. But, serious as those considerations may Ii •, or
may be thought to be, with r<spect IQ foreign relation*,
tlicic are in reference to duwestl ' politics still more
weighty induct tqeqta to hold them. The ell c produ * *1
in the horth and Northwest by an attack ou the
forts while the Uuited Stales’ II ig is floating over them
wovld be as useful to the Government at W.sbiugiou as
tbe effect of abandoning the foitt or lamely sum iubt
ina them would be hurtful to them iu the * stint uiem of
the extreme Republicans. A de* per a to attack, a g Giant
defence, the shedding of tli: blood of gallant in ti, whose
duty it was to defend that iniyuded to lh* ir keeping, ar.d
who yielded only n* numbers—theoutrsg j ou the Unit.d
States's Hag—would create an excitement in the Union
which the South with all im determination and to,irage
is unwilling to provoke, but which the Government would
be forced to use i*i its own servi e. FI ich an event n.m i
had to war—a very terrible and mere Less war ; and botli
pirties pause before they resort to that court of arms.
Unless the Bord* r Slates j »iu the South, Mr. .L (Vernon
Davis could scarcely hop.' to entry out the grand ptejects
which aro attributed to bu military genius of mare nng
qortltwarna and dictating terms on tinir own soii lu
the Republicans. He could scaioeiy venture to leave
the negro population unguarded in his rear, and hi
tlanks menaced hy the sea-borne Northerners on otic
side, and by such operations as the water-sheds sig
nificantly indicate cn the other. It is idle to specu
late on the incidents of that which may never occur,
and which, occurring, may assume tha iuriguitic-ni
aspect of border skirmishes or the tremendous pro
portions of war of races and creed* intensified by the
worst elemeD's of tcrvila and civil conliict. Tbe Gov
eminent ol Mr. Li icoln hope and believe that the con
test maybe averted. Tbe Cammis-iouera of the Momfi
are inclined to think, also, there will be a peaceful solu
tion—obtained, ol course, by full oono-sdon and r.cog
nitiun. But inaction oauaot last on the pait of the
South. Already they luve beguu tha system of ooer
cion. The supplies of tbe girrisoa at Sumter will b-.
cut elT henceforth, if they are nut already forbidden —
They do not fear the moral cl!ret of ibis act, for sonm

Virginia is claimed by both sides, but accounts this morn

the Union ; and, although General Houston appears t>
be forced to accept the tiluation for a time, there are
many who think he will organize a atrong reaction against
the dominant Ssces* o.iists.
Whatever may be the result of all these diverse ao

pule t Tim slip of Stale was buiit of too many

bond of union being discovered in a common animosity
and danger.
Tbe naval preparations, of which you will hear a got d
deaf, are iuteuded to make good existing deficiencies and
to meet contingencies. At any othi r time the uction ol
Spain iti St. Domingo would cieate a cry for war. Niow
all the Federal Government cm do is 10 demand and re
ceive exp'ttu'ioia. In reply to Mr. Seward's inquire-,
t'e Spanish Minister has positively stated that the re
cent events in St. Domingo Inve been caused bv th? act*
threats of Uavti, which forced the Dominicans to eall in
tiie aid andcliim the protection of Spain.

As to the Morrill tariff, 1 can only repeat what 1 liavi
already said. It must be borne till results show that it
canno' be pir.-iued iu. Then only will i- be repealed or
modified. Tin theory of the Government is, that the
United States alway i takes far more from Europe tlmn it
can pay lor. “If the reveuuo is collected there is no
grounii for complaint. The English end French manufac

Aid ior tux Stwtz.—On Mondiy eveinrg a number of
our ei iz> us conceived tbe pi in of raising *50,000 in tbia
coim.y »s a donation to the S’ate for purposes of de
fence. It is proposed to get one hundred persons to
>ub cribe |ki"» each, wb cb, with tho expected appro
priation bv i’.ic county, will make $100,000. The sub
scription was commenced at once, and five persons gave
each *500
We w mmend a similar' plan to tbe citlzena of esck
couu’.yju tho State. The State has no means of raising
money to carry oa this war except from her people.
H :r cnemifK hive combined to d rtroy her credit, and,
act* it f.thetwi-e, the expenses of the war must be borne
by hsr o*ti citizens. Let th* requivite amount tbs n bo
contributed vcluntirily, without retorting to taxation.
