The traitors and rebel? yi the'eotton States, not content with talking, rebellion, going through the farce of organising a go YernmeB and enacting laws on poper, stealing public ttoney and property, taking aseaaU and forts, through - the treicLcry and fraud of government officials, bat em boldened by thcitToeeess in these attempt they Late at last culminated their treason by levying open war againf t their country and its Government, attacked " end taken by force of arms, a United States Fort, bat tered iown it- walls, and trailed the stars and stripes in the dust The United States bad befr.re borne patkntly from these mad men, what no other government npon the earth, would have borne from its own citi cens, and more far more, than it would have submitted to from the strongest ta tion'oa the globe., feu it has been all in vain, and worse than in vain. If the Fed eral Government bad been seeking for an excass t make war npoa &e ' revolted States, it would have been Impossible for it to have pot then a completely in the. wrong, as they, by their last nt wning act cf Infamy, have placed themselves. The wanton and unprovoked attach upon Fort Sumter and its little garrun, has not only united the ci Usees of the Srec States as one man, but it has awscened such a union feeling in the bor jer States, as to leave scarcely a doubt as to their future course. In the stcedhas States is a large body of Union men, now aroused, only waiting for an opportunity to.-show their devotion to their country's cause.""; Throughout the whole land the most in tense excitement prevails, and is ill thi . loval States there is manifested a stern de termination to preserve the Union, and maintain the Constitution and the laws, at all fcaiards.' The President has issued a proclama tion calling for seventy-five thousand vol- TVnnawlwarti'a nlnnr effpra x hnn- dred thousand, New York, Massachusetts, ach and all of the Sew England States, Indiana, Illinois. Michigan. Wisconsin and onr own Ohio, have through, their state of ficials, tendered to the Federal Government their support, and everywhere the note of preparation u heard. The conflict between the Constitution which was bequeated by cur fathers, the ''.national honor, and the laws, on the one hand, and treason and re bcllion on the other, has begun, and must go on until one or the other has conquered. What the People Think of Traitors. The citiiens of this section are law-abi d'.ng people, tut we could see and hear enough on the streets of our town yester day to fully convince us that neither among Democrats nor Republicans, is there sympathy with treason or its supporters. The compressed lips and stern looks which tha races of the masses wore who surroun ded M or two advocates of treason, there, boded no eood to them. There are a few men here, (thank God they are very few,) ifho . not only express sympathy with Southern rebels, but avow their hopes that the Sag of their country may be again and attain tram tied in the dust TVe abhor mob law; we believe in freedom of speech. but advocating treason is not freedom of speech, and we would give to those trait ors to their . Country, their State, their neighbors and their homes, the wholesome advico that it would be well for them to change their tune. The blood of Northern men is mp, and it is not wise for those who are a disgrace to the mother who bore them and the land of their birth, to flaunt their treason in the faces of those who are ready, if need be, t sacrifice upon the al tar of their country, their property and their lives. This is cot a question of party; it is cither Republicanism nor Democracy. It is patriotism against treason, honor against villainy, the stars and stripes against the pirates' flag. There is no mid dle course; those who are not for the Con stitution and the laws, are against them, and we have seen enough to convince us that the day is Hot far distant when the air of free Ohio will not be healthy for traitors to breathe. 1.

We conJensc the following from the tel egraphic dispatches to the Cleveland press. On Friday, at four o'clock in tbe morning, the rebels opened tbe fire npon Fort Sum ter from their batteries on Sullivan Island, Morris Island and other points. Fort Sumter returned the fire and a brisk can nonading was kept up on both sides through the day. ' ' The Herald's special dispatch of Friday, says Fort Moultrie began the bombard ment with two guns, to which Anderson replied with three shots from his barbette puns, after which the batteries at Mount Pleasant Cuinmings' Point and the Float ing Battery opened a brisk fire of shot and shell. Anderson replied only at long in tervals, until between-7 and S o'clock, when he opened from two" tiers of guns looking towards Moultrie and Stevens' Battery, but up to three o'clock failed to produce serious effect During thc great er part of the day Anderson directed his shots principally against Moultrie, the Stevens and Floating Battery, and Fort Johnson, they being the ouly ones opera ting against him. ' Fifteen or eighteen shots struck the Floating Battery without effect Breaches were to all appearances being made in the side of Sumter exposed to tl.e fire. Portions of the parapettc were destroyed, and several guns i-hot away. Of the nineteen batteries in position on ly seven have opened fire on Fort Sumter. The remainder are held in reserve for the expected flett CHARLESTON, April 13. -At intervals of twenty minutes firing was kept up all night on Fort Sumter. Major Anderson ceased firing from Fort Sumter at 6 o'clock in the evening. All night he was engaged in repairing damages and protecting the barbette guns. He commenced to "return the fire at 7 o'clock this morning. Fort Sumter seems to be greatly disa bled. . The battery on Cummings Folnt does Fort Sumter great damage. At 9 o'clock this morning a dense smoke poured out from Fort Sumter. The Fed eral flag is at half mast; signalling dis tress. The shells from Fort Moultrie and the Batteries on Morris Island fall int.) Maj. Anderson's stronghold thick and fast and tbey can be seen in their course from the Charleston Battery. The batteries of Sullivan Island, Cum mines Point and Stevens' battery arc 1 ponring shot and shell into Fort Sumter. Maj. Anderson does not return the fire. Fort Sumter is still on fire. There has just been two explosions at Fort Sumter. At 1 1 o clock names were bursting lrom the port-holes. The destruction of Fort Sumter is inevitable. Four vessels, two of them large steamers, are in sight over the bar. The largest appears to be enga ging Morris Island. The flames have near ly subsided in Fort Sumter, but Maj. An derson does not fire any guns. LATER. The 6hips in the offing appeared to be quietly at anchor. They have not fired a gun yet The entire roof of the barracks are in a vast sheet of flames. Shells from Cummings' Point and Fort Moultrie are bursting in and over Ft Sumter in quick succession. The Federal flag still waves. Maj. Anderson is only occupied in putting out fire. Every shot seems to tell heavily. The people are anxiously waiting for Ma jor Anderson to striae bis nag. it is sta ted from a reliable source that up to ten o'clock to-day no one at Moultrie was kill ed. Eleven shots from Ft Sumter pene trated the floating battery below the water line. 1 he tew shots nred Dy Jiajor An-. The few shots fired by Alaior An- derson early this nioroins knocked thc j diimnevs from the officers' quarters at . aa a t Moultrie like a whirlwind. Mai.

It bumter is undoubt edly en fire. The flames are raging all a- round. Maj. Anderson has thrown out a raft loaded with men. who are passing ap water in buckets to extinguish the fire. Tbe Fort is scarcely discernible. The men on the raft are now objects of fire from Morns Island. CHARLESTON, April 13 Two of Major Andersen's - Magazines exploded. Only occasional shots are fired at bim from Fort Moultrie. The Morris Island Battery is doing heavy work. ' It is thought that only the smaller magazines have exploded. The greatest excitement prevails. Ihe wharves, steeples and ev ery available place is packed with people United States ships are in the offing, but have favpt aided Major Anderson. It is too late now to come over the bar, as the tile is ebbing. The Iron Ea.Jry had been damaged. The rifled cannon ff the battery did great execution on Fort Stuuter, and were all aimed into Anderson' port holes. Three of Sumpter's barbette guns were dismount ed, one of which was a ten inch Coiiimbiad A corner of Fort Sumpter, opposite Moul trie, was knocked off. The steamers Wa ter Witch, Mohawk and Pawneo it was thought were the three Erst yessels seen in the offing.

Andersou's command will evacuate Fort Sumter in the morning, and embark on the war vessels now off the harlior. Five of Anderson's men are wounded, one supposed to. be mortally. . After the surrender a . boat with ten men was sent from the ship of war outside to Morris Island, requesting permission for the vessel to enter and take off Ander son's command. .. It is reported that Anderson surren dered because his quarters and barracks were destroyed, and he had no hope of re inforcements. The fleet lay by 30 hours, and couldn't or wouldu't help him. - His men were prostrated by over exertion. The explosions heard at Sumpter were caused by a lot of shells limiting- The barracks caught fire three times by hot shot from Moultrie. : ' Everything is dismantled, and the walls look like honey -comb. Moultrie is badly damaged, and houses on the island are riddled. - A boat was sent from the fort . to ni"ht to officially notify the fleet of the surrender of Fort Sumpter. FORT SUMTER. ' Fort Sumter is a truncated pentagon, or five sided fortification. The walls are sixty feet iu height and are from eight to twelve feet in thickness on four sides, but on thc fifth side, arc but four feet thick. They are built of solid brick and concrete masonry. The fort is situated on the west side of the ship channel with its base, which is the weaker side, towards the land, aqd nearly parallel to Fort Johnson and the battery en Cumming's Point The walls on this side were originally loophol cd for mu-ketry, but Major A ndcrson has had the embrasures stopped with stone and secured with lead. The work was designed for an armament of 140 guns arranged in three tiers, one over the other. The upper tier are en barbette, not being protected overhead. The two other tiers are under, bomb-proof casements; the lower one being construct ed to contain forty-two pounder Paixhan cuds; the second for eisht and ten inch columbiads for solid or hollow shot; the third for tweuty-four pounders and mor tars. Eleven Paixhan guns are said to have been mounted by Anderson on the first tier. The regular war carrison of the fort is 600 men. but the force at the time of attack was but 109. including la borers, musicians, &c. GARRISON IN FORT SUMTER. Officers, . ' 9 Band, 15 Artillerists. 55 Laborers. CO Total, 109 TUB BXACT DISTANCE OF THB FORTS. Fort Sumter is three and three eighths miles from Charleston, one and one-eighth mile from Fort Moultrie, three-fourths of a mile from Cummings' Point one and three-eighths mile from Fort Johnson, and two and five-eighths miles from Castle Pinckney. ' The city of Charleston is en tirely out of the range of the guns of Fort bumter. THE BATTERIES OPPOSED TO FT. SUMTER. FORT JOHNSON. The present Fort Johnson is simply a hure sand battery, erected on the site cf old Fort Johnson of Revolutionary memo ry. It is one and one-fourth mile from Fort Sumter, and at present is armed with four heavy guns, manned by two compa nies of regular artillery. FORT MOULTRIE. Fert Moultrie is one of the sentinels that guard the principal entrance to Charles ton harbor. It is opposite to and distant from Fort Sumter about one and a half mile. It is. more properly speaking, a . atpr bl ttc without anv nuns un- j -i. t .rmnmont consists of elev. cn truns of heavy calibre and several mor tars. The cuter and inner walls are of brick, capped with stone and filled with earthriUiiiking solid wall fifteen or sixteen feet iu thickness. CASTLE PINCKNEY. Castle Pinckney is a small work, situa ted on the southern extremity of "Shute's Folly Island," between the Hog and Fol ly channels. Though in itself not a very considerable military work, yet from its position, commanding as it does the whole line of the eastern wharves, it becomes of the utmost importance for it to be held by the State authorities. The height of the rampart is twenty, and the width thirty-two feet The width of the outer wall and of the parapet is six feet; the depth of the casemates is twenty feet height ten; the diameter (east aad west) of the castle is one hundred and seventy feet The armament of this castle consists of about twenty-five pieces, 2-1 and 32 pound ers, a few seacoast mortars, and six colum biads tbe latter not being mounted. . COLUMBIA BATTERY. This battery is commanded by Capt Green, and has four ten inch mortars and two Columbiads. STEVENS' BATTERY. ' This is commonly called the Iron Bat tery. Here are three Columbiads, sixty, four pounders; the front or glace, as I be lieve it is called, is protected by sand bags twenty feet thick. The roof of this bat tery, as I believe I have before mentioned, is covered with two layers of the T pat tern rail, which are dovetailed together, and closely pinned to the fibrinous palmet- itn log codoroeatk.

The President's Proclamation. WASHINGTON, April 14. The President's Proclamation says: Wii ebeas, The laws of the Unit jd States have been and now are opposed in several States by combinations too powerful to be suppressed in any ordinary way, 1 there fore call forth the militia of the several States of the Union to the agsregate num ber of 75,000, to suppress 6aid combina tions and executions and execute the laws. I appeal to all loyal citizens to facilitate in civioc aid to this' effort to maintain thc laws, the integrity of the national Union and the perpetuity of popular governments, and to redress wrongs long enough e dur ed. The first service assigned to the forces will probably be the repossession of forts, places and property seized from the Union. The utmost care will be taken, consistent with the object to avoid devastation, des truction or interference with the property of peaceful citizens in any part ot the coun try, aud 1 hereby command all persons composing the aforesaid combinations to disperse within tweuU days from date. I hereby convene both Houses of Congress for the 4th of July next to determine up on measures the public safety demands. (Signed.) ABRAHAM LINCOLN, President. By W. H. SEWARD, Secretary of State. Mr. Douglass for the Union. Among the telegraphic despatches to the Cleveland Herald is the following. WASHINGTON, April 14. Senator Douglass called on the President to-night.. He had an interesting conversa tion on the present condition of the country. The subject of it was, on the part of Mr. Doulass, that while he was unalterably op posed to the Administration on all its po litical issues, he was prepared to sustain the President in the exercise of all consti tutional functions to preserve the Union, maintain the Government and defend the Federal Capita L Firm policy and prompt action were necessary. , the Capital of our country is in danger, and must be protected at all hazards, at any expense of men and money. He spoke of the present and fu ture without reference to tbe past Mr. Lincoln was very much gratified with the interview. Ohio Preparing to Defend the Glorious Stars and Stripes. COLUMBUS, April 14. Adjutant General Carrington has just issued orders, carrying into effect the mil itary laws just enacted by the General Assembly of Ohio, and providing for 6, 000 regular militia, besides a militia of thc reserve of not less than 35,000 men, to be subject to immediate transport into the Tegular force. The militia has been organized into twenty-five regiments, which upon a w:ir basis would make 23,000 men. On Saturday the Adjutant's office was thronged by persons eagerly inquiring for the news and offering their services irre spective of party, in support of the Gen eral. Government. Deafness. It is so rare that deafness is cured that we take great pleasure n calling attention to the two following cases, in this vicinity, treated by Dr. Knapp, Oculist and Anrist of 157 Prospect Street, Cleveland. One, that of a lady, who in vain had tried the skill of other Anrists, was restored to the hearing of a watch held at two feet distant ' from her. The other was of a young man, nine yectrt, who in a few weeks was restored to perfect bearing. It is said that deafness is seldom or never cured ex- cept by a regular Aunst, those who are j deaf will do well to call on Dr Ivnapp. Obtrlin News.
