The Magnificent Uprising in America. The citizens of the. Free Slates sod their representatives of Congress looked upon the threats of secession as mere intimidations, and naught else; nor art they to be blamed forfaiting to suspect their Southern brtih- ernofa treachery without parallel tn At, fory. At length the entire North is awak ened to the truth by the attack on Fort Sumter, and Democrats, Native Americans and Republicans, learn for tho first time that Mr. Lincoln's suocoss is but the pre text for secession, whilst a long preparing and cleverly matured plot to break np the Union is tho only true motive. The North is now hastening as one man, to take ven geance on the traitors. From the forests of Maine to the mountains of Pennsylvania the air is resonant with the clang of arms. Through the land is echoed "The Gaul is at the gates," and the New Englaoder quits the loom, tho Western farmer turns from the plow, and the sturdy settler in far dis tant Minnesota casts aside his axe and rushes to defend the Capital. It is no longer a simple President and a successful political party wbo are mimical to the secedors. The wbolo North is up as one man, and those who but yestorday ridiculed Mr. Lin coln as a fool, or vilified him as a blood thirsty tyrant, now laud him as the second "Father of bis country." Young boys and old men, fly to his summons; millions are placed at his disposal by the State) legisla tures, corporate companios, and even private individuals; business is suspended, and the entire population seems to be drilling itself for the conflict. It only halt MM accounts in the American press be correct, we doubt whether the annals of any country can fur nish more astonishing proof of unanimity of sentiment and self-denying patriotism than are now offered by the Free States of the Transatlantic Union. The South by this time has probably got to the length of their tether. On the 20th ult., the date of the sailing of the previous steamer, there were 5,000 troops in Wash ington, and those numbers were likoly to be doubled when the Persia left. The capital of the United States is well adapted for defense, and before the Southern army can enter the city, it must cross one of two deep rivers, or pass the Virginia Hills, which are now covered with batteries. Gen. Scott, the conqueror of Mexico, has been engaged for months past in preparing for an attack, and there is small probability of the enemy taking him by surprise. It is understood, moreover, that the Uabinet has resolved to carry out his plan of cam paign against tho sccoded States ; and inas much as no officer bas yet been named to command the Federal Army in tho field, it may be designed that the General shall carry out his own plans in person. If so, wo roust prepare for much abuse of him, both in Europe and bis own country. Lieut. Gen. Winficld Scott is by no means a popular commander until the close of tho campaign, for he manoeuvres long, fights as little as possible, and wins unex pectedly. It was so especially during the war with Mexico, and we should not be sur prised, from what we know of his past his tory, to find tho Southern army lying before Washington for two or three weeks to come, and the Northern people accusing him of cowardice, and the President of pusillani mity. We have little doubt, however, of the final result, considering the relative re sources of the contending parties, the basis of their operations, and above all, the causes in which they are embarked. What We Must be Prepared for. A Richmond letter to the New York Tribune closes as follows: I will again implore you to be prepared for a murderous attack upon the invading army of the Union. Let that army, there fore be formidable in numbers. There are two opinions here in regard to meeting the enemy. One is to let him advanee to the interior of the State, and thus lull him into a sense of security, in order tho better to annihiliate him at the moat unexpected mo ment; another is to repel invasion imme diately. Bo prepared for all these contingencies. Be also prepared to meet not soldiers, but murderers, freebooters, pirates, fiends, fran tic with a lust of blood, chuckling with de light at the thought of scalping, disembow elling, killing thrice and thrice over, their enemy. Be prepared for treachery, arson, for all horrors, sins and crimes, oe pre pared for meeting the scum of humanity, wno, in times oi peace, raise muraeroua hands against legislators in their seat in the Senate, and who, in time of war, will pile murder upon assassination, and crime upon crime. Let not your commanding officers expose themselves ' unnecessarily. One of the special efforts of the "Chivalry" will be to shoot down the commanding of ficers. As in Europe, insane regicides thought themselves able to upset govern ment by aiming at the breast of a ruler so in the South, the guilty fools think they can upset an army by aiming at the Lead of the commander. Though I solemnly reiterate and confirm 11 1 have said about the iotrinsio weakness of the South in a military, pecuniary, intel lectual, political, moral, and general sense, yet remember for God's sake, remember that despair gives strength, and that the South is in despair. I endeavor to get at the truth, not to overrate the resources of the South, but also not to underrate the sort of diabolical inspirUvo which it de rives from its wickedness and despair. War Supplies from England. We have bad all sorts of reports about the purchase and shipment of munitions ef war for the United States from England, and but little has really beea known about it.
