Emistarie from the South Carolina Injur g ente are In Washington, rewired bf the rresidunt, and actually bullying htm with threats of loing their worst if he does not (ui render the national fortification into their ponewiion. Who will nj this U not a progressive nation, when Insurrection sends Commissioners to dictate to the Oorern 0 ent the terms on which it shall surrender tu them ? : Still Irrepressible. The Enquirtr refuses to say what it will concede to pacify the Southern heart and are the Union. ' According to its own Irresistible logic, we hare to hold it respon sible for the destruction of "the fairest fabric of human government on which the un ever shone ; one founded by divine wis dom." We repeat for the third time, will the En quirer surrender its popular-sovereignty, and concede the right of protection te Slavery in the Territories, and admit that the Dred Scott decision declared that right? We fear that the only concession that the Enquirer will offer, is to give op the Repub lican party; and that it means to hold a tight grip on its popular-sovereignty re bellion, while it is as free as a certain Scriptural character was, in conceding that Which it has not got. Still Irrepressible. South Carolina Victories. South Carolina has taken Fort Moultrie. She promised the President that she would hold herself till the end of his trm. But that was when Major Anderson and sixty or seventy men were at fort Moultrie. Its evacuation put a different face on the mat ter. Then the valor of her sons could be no longer restrained. Like great Caisar, sho Clime, she saw it was empty, and sho went in. Where yesterday was the Btars and stripes, now waves the star and the decaying Pal metto, and the rattle-snake, with rattles .Sprung. There she may enjoy her airs of nationality, unless Major Anderson should drop an eighly-pound shot into the fcrt, in which rase fbe would scamper out like a parcel of rats. Never before was victory so little prized. She has invaded United States territory and Se'?ed a national fortress; but instead of glorying in her conquest, she actually re gards it as an aggression upon her; and her Commissioners make it a cause for a resort to the last extremities. Concession operates fetidly. - Major Anderson has conceded a fort, end South Carolina regards it as a cause for War. If conceding half the fortifications af fects her so, it is fearful to think of her ex asperation if all should be delivered p. South Carolina now has possession of the Arsenal, and Fort Moultrie and Castle Pinck ncy. She has already achieved three brill iant victories; and yet she is unhappy, and really regards them as grievances. This, probably, arises' from the fact that she is un used to military victories, and don't know bow to enjoy them. As South Carolina has levied war against the United States, by capturing one of her fortifications, it is presumed that no one now Will dispute that she has committed the oveit act of treason. They who now give her aid and comfort will do well to retiect upon the category in which they place them selves. It is very well to follow'one's party; but when its course ends in a noose, it is time to pause. Party platforms are well nttil tbey tarn into platforms with a drop. Even the hardest beaded party man would cull that a drop too much. The Suicide of the South. The tbipnient of arms to the .South at this time, when the Administration dare not protect those already there, is so open a be trajal of the Government that the people of the North could hardly be expected to sub mit to it. It remains to be Been whether the President, who dare not use force to main tain possession of the. public arms in the South, will use force in order to deliver up more of them to the South. But there is another consideration besides the safety of the Union, which should prevent: that is, the safety of the South. Arms are not sol diers nor men. While the Cotton State, With the aid of treason in the Government, nro stripping the Union of its arms, they are Increasing the combustible elements of the Yoicano on which tbey sleep. Fear of servile insurrection has been played npon as a po litical tool, until it has become chronic. Hardly a week passes without an account of an insurrection panic. Is it prudent to send arms in large quanti ties into such a country without placing them in the Lauds of disciplined men 1 Look at Charleston, for instance.. A treacherous Secretary of War has accumulated 75,000 Stand of arms at Charleston with a view to secession. But there are not 75,000 able bodied white men in that State, while there are more than 100,000 able bodied negroes A negro insurrection could seize the Charles ton arsenal any night. The consequences of that affright the imagination. It would annihilate the rule of the white race in South Caiolina in a week, and it would have to be restored by the army of the Union. And Southern politicians have done their utmost to prepare the miud of the ne groes for this. They have constantly de clared, in their presence, that the success of the Black Republicans would abolish slavery, and that they would invade the South to set the negroes free. The mass of the slaves be lieve that the Republicans are black, and thai tbey axe contending for the supremacy Of the black race. The madness which is the forerunner of destruction, bas footed itself to the top of its bent in the South." Ten thousand Abolition emissaries rould not have done so much to prepare Asjt slaves for revolt, as has been done bv Southern politicians. At home the negroes know their numbersaud power ; and they have been taught by Southern har angues that they have allifS in the North who have already been victorious ever their own masters. .

This fort became historical by Its defense in 1776. A British squadron arrived on the coast In May, destined to operate against the Carol in as. Congress beii.r informed of the intention by intercepted otters,, bad ep pointed General Lee to the command of the Southern Department On the llrst 4';arnr, several regiments of Virginia and. North Carolina troops marched to Charleston. With the South Carolina troops and militia, these made about 6,000 men. Three weeks elapsed from the appes ranee of thu British to the attack, which was employed by the Americans in throwing np fortifications. The entrance to the harbor was guarded by an unfinished fort which Was occupied by Colonel Moultrie with his regiment. The British vessels attempted to take the fort in front and flank, but three of the vessels, in taking np a raking position, got among the shoalsand grounded. Those in front met so vigorous a cannonade that they were com pelled to retire with severe damage and loss. The attack on the fort having failed, that on the land was abandoned, and the fleet sailed New York. In 1779 Charleston was again threatened by Trevost with 3,000 British from Savannah. General Lincoln was then on the march toward Augusta, in hopes to recover Upper Georgia. Moultrie, with 1,000 men, was guarding the lower passes of the Savannah, but they offered but little resistance. Hearing of the movement, Lin coln reached a battalion to aid Moultrie, and himself crossed the river and marched down the other side, expecting to draw Prevost back. But Prevost, who at first had no intention of marching upon Charles ton, assured by the terror he inspired, and by the number of royalists that joined him, determined to de so. Hearing of this Lincoln recrossed the rivor, and hnrried to the relief of Charleston. Gov. Rutledge made every effort to gather the country militia. Moultrie arrived with his thousand men, as also did the battalion sent by Lincoln. Pulaski, who had been detached with his legion for the Southern service, also arrived in advance of the Brit ish. Prevost delayed hts march to gather information and arrange plans, while the citizens were busy in throwing up fortifica tions. When Prevost arrived he summoned the town to surrender. Gov. Rutledge offered to stipulate the neutrality of South Carolina during the war, leaving it to be decided at the peace to whom she belonged. This did not satisfy Prevost, but in the delay the works had become so strong, and Lincoln's approach was so near, that he abandoned the idea of assaulting the town, and spent a few days plundering the surrounding plantations, and after some skirmishing retired into Georgia. In 1780 a British squadron again sailed to attack Charleston. Efforts were made to assemble the militia, but as South Carolina hud stated to Congress, but little could be done with militia, "by reason of the great number of citizens necessary to remain at home to prevent insurrection among the ne groes, and their desertion to the enemy." Besides this, a large number of Carolinians were enrolled in the royal service. The inhabitants of Charleston were zeal ous for defending the town. Lincoln ar rived with several Virginia and North Carolina regiments, and some Continentals. His force thus amounted to UDward of 7,000 men, including 4,000 of the militia of the city. Not 200 men were furnished by the surrounding country. The British fleet passed Fort Moultrie with trifling loss, and took four Continental and two French frigates and several small vessels which had been relied on to defend the harbor. Threatened by sea and land Fort Moultrie surrendered. Col. Tarleton cut in pieces the two Continental regiments which had under taken to keep communications open to the North. The town was completely iuvested, and in anticipation of an assault the Ameri cans surrendered. The conquest of South. Corolina was complete, and the greater pjtrt of the inhabitants look the oath of allegiance to the British Government. Charleston re mained in British possession till the close of the year 1782, when they evacuated it on ac countof the difficulty of procuring provisions' The Revolutionary History of South Carolina. The city of Charleston was a Tory city in the Revolution, and lapse of time has not changed its character. What there was in the origin or condition of its people to ren der them so unlike those of other sections of the country it is not easy to determine ; but certain it is that that species of loyalty which consists in a mere irrational worship of conventional or accidental eminence al ways was a controlling element in their com position. They proposed to be left out of the Revo lution, to stand neutral until it was over, and to let the question whether the State should belong to Great Britain or remain one of the United States be decided by a treaty of peace between the two powers. Such, said General Moultrie, was the messago from the Governor and Council of South Carolina to General Prevost, as stated by Dr. Ramsay, in his Jlutory of South Carolina. Says Dr. Ramsay "On the 5th of June, 1780, an address, signed by 204 citizens of Charleston, ti. C, was presented to Sir Henry Clinton, Gen eral of His Majesty's forces, in which tliey say: 'We take this opportunity of tendering to your Excellency our warmest congratula tions on the restoration of this capital and province to their political connection with the Crown and Government of Great Britain. W beu e the doc trine of Independency, which originated in the more Aorthern Loluniet, made its appear ance among us, our nature revolted at the idea, and we look back with the most pain ful regret on those convulsions that gave ex istence to a power of subverting a constitu tion, for which we always had, and we shall retain the most profound veneration, and substituting in its stead a rank democracy, i i i . 1 1 .1 : ... i ; .. . i W 11 A. 11, uuwcTcr inrciuuj uigcveij m fcUC'IJ j. on being reduced into practice, has exhibited a syttem of tyrannie domination only to be found among the uncivilised part of mankind or in the history of the dark and barbarous aces of artiquity With such an early history, there is not much octasion for surprise at the late South Carolina nullification or disunion.

Whother this sum is In tended to include $26,995 paid in .salaries to officers is not determinable by tbr Treasury Report probably no. It is slated that by the admiMion of the bt-cretary of the Treas ury, there is not money enough collected in the State, for customs, to pay the cost of collection.

Suppose the accounts of th"! other States resembled this, how lon would it be de siiable to continue the Union? ' The Grab-Game at Washington. The correspondent of the New York Herald, a paper which bos Btuck like a cutaneous disease to the President through all his trials, says : . "Many members of Congress are suspicious that a general grub-game is going on in tho various departments of the Governmeut, in view of the prospective dissolution of the Union ; and the belief is strengthened greatly by the events of a day or two, and it is seri ously contemplated to institute a thorough investigation into the aftairs of each bureau of each of the Departments. Congress could not be engaged in a better work, for there is no doubt that the suspicion of members re ferred to is j ustly grounded. Tub Courier says the Fittsburgers "dosire some escnse for the commission of an overt act of treason, in preventing tho removal of guns under the order of the Secretary of War to supply new forts, the construction of which is just completed ?" Preventing the removal of arms is treason, then. This discloses the Courier' t opinion Oftheactof the Charleston people in pre venting the removal of the arms from the arsennl. It means that it wa? treason, and that the South Carolinians are traitors. Why this is rank Abolitiouism, which with the Courier is the beginning and end of argu ment.
