The Brooklyn, under Buchain an's quasi, armistice, retusred to landu troops to reinforce Pickens before the crisis would be ri-ached at Sumter. To prevent Sumter'seevacuationbe fore Picken's reinforcement, the Gov ernment planned an expedition to vie tual Stumtntr to he used or not as circumstancem might require. (ontin getcia s raquira',t tin- t' att.a.att tii)it i ts. +'h, alatta|, Governor Pickons was notified that ift' the victualling was unresis twt, n, attempt would be made to throw in men, arms or ammunition. Without notice, the fort was taken without waiting for the victualling iexpedition. Thus the attack on Fort Sumter was in no sense in self defence; the assailants knew in no evout could Fort Sumter be mischie vous; they were notified that feed ing hungry men was the only object of the Government; that the Govern wue4ut only wished to maintain nomi nal possession of the fort, thus pre serving the Union from dissolntion trusting to time, discussion and the ballot-box for a final adjustment. Th'le furt was assailed for the object of driving out visible Federal author ity-fnrcing immediate dissolution. 'hi. the Executive understood, and having been inaugurated, said can you have no contlict without yourselves being the aggressors. iLitucoln took pains to keep this de claration good in the circumstances surlrounding the Sumter affair. The ('uofidecratesbegan the eonflict ; they have f-rced upon the country the destructive issue of immediate disso Intion, or the shedding of blood em bracing imore than the fate of the 'Il1ion.

The continuance of this law, made in such Vxtreme tenderness to the cit izen:.' liberty, practically relieved more of the guilty than the innocent. 'T'o tat,' the question more directly : Are all the laws but one to be unexe cuted, and government go to pieces lest one be violated ? " But it was be lieved that the suspension of the place at the Government's disposal at least 400,000 men and 8400,000, 000. Of that number of men 100. -000 are now available. Within the willing region that sum is but a twen ty-third of the wealth of men who seem willing to devote their all. Six hundred million is less per head than the Revolutionary proportion. Sure ly the motive now is as strong as then; a right result now will be worth to the world ten times the men, and ten times the money. The legisla tive sanction only is necessary; ma terial for work is abundant. The greatest Government perplexity is the avoidance of receiving men fast er than prepared. The people will save the govern ment if the government will bat do its duty. While there is percepti bility, but little difference between secession and revolution, the traitors knew they could never raise their treason to the respectability of a re volution, by a name implying viola tion of law; they could advance in directly in the teeth of the noble sentiments of the people, they com menced insidiously to debauch pub lic sentiments, invented ingenious sophisms-of which, if considered logically, followed incidents to a des truction of the Union. Their sophism is legal, peaceful withdrawal without the Union's con sent, thus sugar coating rebellion, the public mind has been drugged during thirty years, and good men are in arms against the government. Their sophism derives currency from the assumption of some omnipotent sun premacy belonging to a State. States are no more nor less than reserved powers, no one of them being a pow rr out of the Union; the original ones passed in to the Union before casting off British colonial dependence, new ones came in from a conditional de pendence; even Texas during tempo rary dependence, was never designed as a State, the word sovereign State is not in the constitution, nor is it be lieved in any State Constitution. Here follows an elaborate argument against the right of secession. It is questioned whether the peo plI of every State, except South Car ,lina, do It faivor the Union-the contrary has not been demonstrated. Our adversaries have adopted some dcl;arations ,f independence, where in 'all mten are created equal" have b,.en omitted; their constitution, in .tend of "'we the people" has "we,the dleputie" of the. sovereign and inde pendeLt iStat.es. Why ignore the rgghts of mten--the authority of the This is essentitall a people's con ts=t. i tam haplpy to, !.,lieve that t he pelain, cummnll peoplle understand land apIprelate this. It is notetwor thy, that while in the nation's trial, officers have reseigned, no commlllon soldier has deserted tilhe flag. It remain.s to be ,lemon.ltcirated that those who caIt carry an election, call also suppress the rebellion; that bal lots are righttful and peaceful suc cessors of bullets, and that when ballots hlave fairly and constitution ally decided, thler can be no succe:s t'ul appeeal back to Ihullets-tno appeal except to ballots thense.lves lat sue ceeding elections. Such will be thee lesson of peace, teaeching inn. that what they have by an election, they cannot take by war. Lest there be uneasiness regarding thee course of the government toward the southern States, after the sup preseion of the. rebellion, itis assured it will be guided by the constitution and laws. The executine desires to adiminister the govermnent as admin istrated by the government makers. Loyal citizens everywhere have the rig it to claim this, and it is not per ceived that there is any coercion in! conquering on these terms. The Constitution guarantees each State a representative form of gov ernment. If a State withdraws, it may change that fonnrm to prevent its going out, indispensable to maintain ing a guarantee. With the deepest regret the Executive employed the war power in defence of the govern ment; but it was forced upon him; he could but perform his duty, or surrender the government. No compromise in this case could cure-not that compromises are not otten proper, but no popular govern meut could long survive a marked precedent, that those who carry an election, can only save the country by giving up the main point upon which the people gave their decision at the election. The people them selves, not their servants, can reverse this decision. As a private citizen, the evecutive could not consent to see our institu tions perish, much less betray so vast, so sacred a trust as a free people con tided inhim. He had so moral right to shrink, nor count the chances of his life, in what might follow. In full view of his great respon sibility he has done what he deemed his duty.

A Heroie of 'G61.-The Harper's Ferry tc· irrespondentof the Louisville C:ourier relates the following patriotic incident, in which a lady of Mary land was the actor: In the dearth of other news, let me give you another instance of the love ly devotion of women to our noblest and most glorious of all causes. Very recently, Mrs. Bradley Johnson, of Frederick, Maryland, wife of a leading lawyer, and daughter of Rom ulus M. Saunders, formerly Minister to Spain, hearing that the Baltimore regiment, stationed at thispoint, were not adequately armed and equipped, determined to remedy the defect, Alone she journeyed to North Caro lina, her native State, and before a meeting Qf prominent citizens ex plained the object of, her mission, lBut a few words of her eloquent and pleading tongue were necessary. Five hundred of the most approved rifles were instantly supplied.beside clothing, accoutrements of all dcscrip tions. She returned here and was re ceived with all the honors due a worthy woman, who had nobly ac complished her patriotic misaion, But this is not the only feat of Mrs. Johnson worth recording. On her route homeward, while passing over the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, her suspiciana (womanly, and, of course, more acute) were aroused by the appearance of a man on the train. Shte inveigled the fellow into conver sation, and finally elicited from him such expressions of sympathy for the North, as to justify an oficer being called and an arrest being made. Concealed about his person were found maps, plans and other docu ments. He proved to be a Mr. Me Kenzie, of Alexandria, and paid spy in the service of Lincoln's Gov ernment. The London correspondent of the N'ew York Daily News, in his letter of June 7, writes: A loan has been negotiated in Lomn bard street to the tune of several mil lions by a New Orleans mas, not un known in Amsterdam.
