The blow which we have been awaiting, but which we would fain have averted, has fallen ! The so-called Southern Confed eracy has plunged tho country into a war that must be, indeed, terrible; ior it will be the death-struggle between Freedom and Slavery. Hostilities have been precipitated by the Traitors with them the dreadful re sponsibility will rest. But this war now thrust upon us must be prosecuted to a ftcrn and definite conclusion. No Com promises nor Concessions will avail now. Stern Justice must be meted out to those who have incurred the penalty of Treason which is death by levying war against the Federal Government. Union and Freedom is our battle-cry ; Disunion and Slavery the Traitors'. Fort Sumter has been lost, but Liberty is saved. The end is not yet ! Vie give a summary of the ncw3 re ceived up to the time of going to press : Charleston, April 12. The ball has been opened at last, and war is inaugura ted. The batteries on Sullivan's Island, Morris Island, and other points, opened on Fort Sumter at four o'clock this morn ing. Fort Sumter returned the fire and a brisk canuonading has been kept up. No information has been received from the seaward yet. The militia are under arms, and the whole of" our population are on the (streets. Every available space facing the harbor is filled with spectators. April 12. The following is the tele graphic correspondence, which took place between the War Department of the Con federate Government and General Beaure gard, immediately preceding the com mencement of the hostilities. The corre spondence grew out of the formal notifica tion of the United States Government disclosed in General Beauregard's first despatch. CORRESPONDENCE. No. 1: Charleston, April 8. To Hon. L. P.

C. Beauregard. Charleston, Friday, April 12. The firing has continued all day without inter mission. Two of Fort Sumter's guns have been silenced, and it is reported that a breach has been made m the south-east wall. The answer to Gen. Beauregard's de mand by Major Anderson was that he should surrender when his supplied were exhausted that is, if he was not re-en forced. Not a casualty has yet happened to any of the forces. Of the 10 batteries in position, only 7 have opened fire upon Fort Sumter, the remainder being held in reserve for the expected fleet. iwo thousand men rcaclie 1 the city this morning, and embarked for Morris Island and the neighborhood. April 12. The firing has ceased for the night, but will be renewed at daylight If an attempt is made to re-enforce, ample arrangements have been made to repel l The 1'awnee, Harriet Lane and a third steamer are reported oil the bar. Troops are arriving by every train. April lo, 11, A. M- At intervals of twenty minutes, the firing was kept up all night on iort Sumter. Major Anderson ceased to fire at six o clock in the evening All night he was engaged in repairing damages done to the iort, and protecting the guns in the barbette on the parapet. He commenced to return the fire this morning at 7 o'clock; but seems to be greatly disabled. The battery on Cum- miugs Point does rort feumter great dam age. iit nine o ciock tnis morning a dense smoke poured out from the walls of Fort fcumtcr. lhc shells from Iort Moultrie and Morris Island fell into Anderson's stronghold thick and fast. They cm be seen in their course from the Charleston battery. The breach made in Fort Sumter is on the side opposite Cunnniug's Point. Two of its port holes are knocked into one, arid the wall lroni the top is crumbling. Three vessels, one of them' a large sized steamer, are over the bar and seem to be preparing to participate in the conflict. The fire of Morris Island and Fort Moultrie is divided between Fort Sumter aud the ships of war. The ships have not as yet opened fire. An explosion has occurred at Fort Sum ter. A dense volume of smoke was seen suddenly to rise. Major Anderson has ceased to fire for about an hour. It is thought that the officer's quarters iu Fort Sumter are on fire. Two of Major Anderson's magazines have exploded, but it is thought they were only smaller magazines. Only occasional shots are now fired at him from Fort Moultrie; tho Morris Island battery is doing heavy work. Tho- outside vessels were too late to passthc bar. The ships in the ofiing have not yet aided Anderson. It is now too late lor them to come over the bar, as the tide is ebbing. April 13. Noon. The ships in the ofirng appear ouictlv at anchor, and havo ' 4. ' not fired a gun. The entire roofs of An derson's barracks are in a sheet of flames. Shells from Cummings' Point and Fort Moultrie are bursting over Fort Sumter in quick succession. The Federal fiag still waves over the Fort. Major Anderson is only occupied in putting out the fire. Every shot ap pears to tell, and the spectators are anx iously expecting the striking of the flag. April lu, Evening. Hostilities have for the present ceased, and the victory be longs to the Traitors. With the display of the flag of truce on the ramparts of Fort Sumter at half-past one o'clock, the firing ceased, and unconditional surrender was made. The Carolinians had no idea that the fight would end go soon. After' the flagstaff of Major Anderson was shot ! away, Col. Wingfall, the aid of Gen Beau regard, at his commander's request, went to Fort Sumter with a white flag to offer assistance in extinguishing the Cames. He approached the burning fortress from Morris Island and while the firing w as ra ging on all sides, he effected a landing at Sumter. lie approached a port hole and was met by Maj. Anderson the commandant of the Fort. The latter said that he had just displayed a white flag, but the firing was kept up nevertheless. Col. Wigfall replied that M'j. Anderson must haul down the American flag that no parley would be granted. Surrender or fight was the word. Maj. Anderson then hauled down his fiag, and displayed only the flag of truce. All firing instantly ceased, and two others of Beauregard's stall", ex-Senator Chesnut and ex-Governor, Manning came over in a boat and stipulated with Maj. Anderson that his surrender should be unconditional for the present, subject to General Beauregard's orders. Maj. Anderson was allowed to remain in actual possession of the fort, while Messrs. Chesnut and Manning came over to the city accompanied by a number of the Palmetto Guards bearing the colors of his company. These were met at the pier by hundreds of citizens, and as they marched up the streets to the General's quarters, the crowd was swelled to thous ands. Shouts rent air, aud the wildest joy was manifested on account of the welcome tidings. After the surrender, a boat with an officer and men was sent from one of the four ships in the offing to Gen. Simmons, commanding on Morris Island, with the request that a merchant ship, or one of the vessels of the United States, be al lowed to enter and take off the comman der and garrison of Fort Sumter. Gen. Simmons replied that if no hostil ities were attempted during the night, and no effort was made to reinforce or re take Sumter, he would give an answer at nine o'clock on Sundav morning. The officer signified that he was satisfied with this, and returned to his vessel. Tho explosions that were heard and seen from the city in the morning were caused by the bursting of loaded shells ignited by the fire, which could not be ex tinguished quick enough. The fire in the barracks was occasioned by the quantities of hot shot poured in from Fort Moultrie. Within Fort Sumter everything but the casements is in utter ruins. Mauy of the guns are dismounted. The side opposite the iron battery at Cum tiling's Point is the hardest dealt with. The rifled can non of the battery played great havoc with Sumter, and her walls look like a honey comb. The side opposite Fort Moultrie is also honeycombed extensively, as is that opposite the Floating Battery. Fort Moultrie is badly damaged. The officers' quarters and barracks arc torn to pieces. The frame houses on the island are rid dled with shot, and in many instances the whole sides of the houses are torn ont. The fire in Sumter was put out and re caught three times during the day. Dr. Crawford, Anderson's surgeon, is slightly wounded in the face. It is posi tively asserted that none of the Caroliua troops are injured. A boat was sent from the port to-night to officially notify the fleet that Major An derson had surrendered. April 14, 0 o'clock, A. M. The nego tiations were completed last night, and Major Anderson with his command will evacuate Fort Sumter this morning. April 14. Maj. Anderson, with his command, departed in the Isabel for New York. In saluting his flag before leaving, a pile of cartridges exploded, killing two men and wounding four others. One was buried in the Fort with military honors; the other is to be buried byr the Charles ton troops. The wounded were brought to the city. The Confederate and Palmetto Flags were hoisted on the Fort, which is garri soned by the Palmetto Guerds. It is l elieved that the war vessels have establ'shed a blockade. Col. Wigfall received the sword surren dered by Anderson, and then complimcn ted his bravery by returning it to him Tho Federal .fleet is still in sirht of Charleston. Montg imery, April 1 3. Fort Pickens was reinforced last night. It is under stood that Charleston is to be blockaded. Lieutenant Warden, of the U. S. Navy, has been taken prisoner, and the despatch es from Slemmer to the government at Washington obtained. Charleston, April 15 The excite ment here is subsiding There are many small boats with the fleet, which remains outside. All these boats have muffled our and oar-locks. Fort .Sumter is occupied by two com panies of Palmetto Guards. Workmen and mechanics arc engaged in clearing away the wreck at Sumter. 'As the Carolinians hope that a land at tack will be made, they evidently want a mortality list in the next engagement. Eight thousand men are now under arms.. THE PLAN FOR RELIEVING FORT SUMTER. The plan for provisioning Fort Sumter was based upon the fact of unusual high tide in Charleston harbor on the 10th 11th and 12th, which would enable steam tugs to float over the shoals, out of reach of the rebel batteries on Morris Island. The storm delayed the vessels, and when they arrived it was too late. The shins of war were simply to lie outside and protect the transports from the rebel ves sels that might be scut to stop their ras- sage over the shoals. Proclamation of ilia President. 75,000 VOLUNTEERS CALLED FOR! SPECIAL. MEETING OF CONGRESS ! ! Washington City, April 14. Where as, the laws of the United States have been, for some time past, and are nowT, op posed, aud the execution thereof obstruct ed in the States of South Carolina, Geor gia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louis iana and Texas, by combinations too pow erful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, or by the powers vested in the Marshals by law, Now, therefore, 1, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, iu virtue of the powers in me vested by the Consti tution and the Jaws, have thought fit to call forthwith, and hereby do call forth the MILITIA of the several States of the Union, to the aggregate number of SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND, in order to suppress the said combination, and "cause the laws to be duly executed." The details for this object will be im mediately communicated to the State au thorities, through the War Department. I appeal to all loyal citizens to favor, facil itate and aid this effort to maintain the honor, the integrity and the existeuce of our National Union, and the perpetuity of the popular Government, and to redress the wrongs already too long endured. I deem it proper to say that the first service assigned to the forces hereby called forth, will" probably be to REPOSSESS THE FORTS, places and property which have been seized from the Union ; and in every event, the utmost care will be observed, consistently with the objects aforesaid, to avoid any devastation of, or interference with, the property, or any disturbance of peaceful citizens in any part of the country. And I hereby command the persons com posing the combinations aforesaid to dis perse and retire peaceably to their respect ive abodes, withintwenty days from this date. Deeming that the present condition of public affairs presents an "extraordinary occasion," I do hereby convene both Houses of Congress. The Senators and Representatives are therefore summoned to assemble at their respective chambers, at twelve o'clock, noon, on Thursday, the fourth of July next, then and there to consider and determine such measures a, iu their wisdom, the public safety and interest may seem to demand. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and cause'the seal of the United States to be affixed.

LINCOLN'S REPLY TO THE VIR GINIA COMMISSIONERS. Washington, April 13. In Mr. Lin coln's reply to the Virginia Commission ers, after expressing his regret that the public mind is still uncertain as to his course, and reaffirming the policy marked out iu his inaugural address, he says : "But if (as now appears to be true) in the pursuit of a purpose to drive the United States authority from these places, an un provoked assault has been made on Fort Sumter, I shall hold myself at liberty to repossess, if 1 can, like places which had been seized before the government was devolved upon me ; and, iu any event, 1 shall to the best of my ability repel force by force "In case it proves true that Sumter has been assaulted, as is reported, I shall per haps cause the U.S. mails to be withdrawn from all the States which claim to have .seceded, believing that the commencement of actual war against the United States Government justifies and possibly demands it. Whatever else I may do for the pur pose, I shall not attempt to collect the duties by any armed invasion of any part of the country not meaning by this, however, that 1 may not land a force, if deemed necessary, to relieve a fort upon the border of the country. THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA FOR THE UNION. The following is an extract from a letter written by Gov. Letcher of Virginia, to a friend iu New York. It fully denies the reports circulated as regards the recession proclivities of the chief magistrate of the Old Dominion : "Richmond, Va., April 5, 1SG1.
