Un th« 4th of Mar h. a letter was received from Mnj.
Anderson of Fort Sumter, jstating that ihe place could
not be held. Un further consultation, (Jen Scott con-
^ideJed lliat the force at the disposal of the government
was not adequate to the relief of Fort Sumter without
immediately victualing it. The duty of the Aiimini?-
tration was itius reduced to the sale withdrawal of the
garrison. Ii v\as believed, however, that the abandon
ment of Sumter would be utterly ruinous; that the ac
tion would be nii.'Understood, discouraging the friends
of the Union and emboldening its enemies, and encour
aging the recognition of the Confederate States abroad;
that, in fact, it would be national destruction. If this
course v\as unavoidable previous to Sumter’s starvation,
Fort Pickens might be reinforced, thus indicating the
policy of the Administiation and prejtaring the public
niind for the evacuation of Sumter as a military neces
sity. Orders were immediately issued for the reinforce
ment ot Pickens, and as it was imposaiblc to tran.'niil
these orders by land, they were sent by sea. The first

about their sweef-hearts and the loved one? at home. ; teelingly adopted :
of i Whereas, It has iileased Almighty (Jod in the rli.'-
pen.^ation of His Providence to permit the sudden and
armistice, refused to land troops to reiuforee Pickens
before ihe crisis should be relieved at Sumter.
In order to prevent the evacuation of Sumti r before
Pickeus could be reinforced, the government jdanned
an expedition to victual Sumter, to be used or not as
circumstances might require, ('ontingencies requiring
I the consummation of this plan. Gov Pickeus was iioti-
} tied that if the victualing iva«: not resisted no attempt
i would be made to throw in men, arms or ammuniLion
• w iihout giving him notice. The fort, however, was
; taken without wailing for the victualing ex|>cdilion;
j thus the attack on Sumter cannot be said to be in scif-
I defence. The a.ssailants knew that iu no event could
j Fort Sumter be mischeviou>; and they were notified tliut
feeding hungry men was the only object; that the gov-
j ernmeut only wished to maintain nominal posses.= ion,
I thus {(reserving the Union from dissolution, tru.'^iing to
j time ami the ballot box for fiual adjustment. The fort
I was assailed tor one object: to drive out federal aiithor-
j i/y and force immediate itissoliition. This the Execu
tive understood, aud having inaugurated ho.-tilitie»,
tiiey brought on the conflict by being the aggressors.
Prefideut Lincoln took pain.stoheep llii.-5 declaration
good in the circumstances surrounding the Siinittr
atlair. Then thesu Confederates began the conflict;
they have forced upon the country the destructive i.^sue
of immediate dissolution, eintMacing more than the
fate of the L'liion, as it solves the question whether a
governuient of the people can uuiintaiu the integiity
of its territory ngaiii't domestic foes, and whether a
band of individuals, too few to control the Adniini.stra-
tion by organized law can break up the liovernment,
thus ending the fieest Government on earth. It forces
this question, must a government be too strong for the
liberty of a people, or too weak to maintain its own
existence? No choice was left but to call out the war
power of the Government to resiat the force employed
for its destruction. The re.«ponse to the call for troops
surprised the most sanguine expectations, Delawaie
a'one, however, of all the slave States resjtonding. A
few regimeiiis have been raised in slave Slates by in
dividual enterjirise, and accepted.
The Piorder Slates were not uniform in their action.
The course taken by Virginia is ihe most remarkable
and important. A (’onveniion toconsider this question,
iu session when Fort Sumter fell, with a large Union
majority, went over, and carried the Stale out of the
Union. They made exter sive military prej)arations.

Confederate troops, enterei infti a treaty with the ’on-
feder;ite States, ^ent Representatives to the Confederale
I’ouncils, and permitted the insurrectionary (jovern-

Government ha.s no choice left in regard to Virginia,

mined, upon uiatheinatical principles, and after
the most extended anl laborious calculation, that
of l!n1.UUU,UUU of chances there is only one un
favorable, or that can produce a collision between
the two bodies, 'fhe risk therel'ore, to which the
oirfh is cxposeil of being struck by a comet, is
like the chance one would have in a lottery, where
there were liSl,UUU,UCt> black balls and but one
white one; and where the white ball must be pro
duced at the first drawin'j; to secure a [irize.
In the second place, if a comet were to come in
direct collision with the earth, it is not probable
that it would be able even to penetrate our at-
m '.>-pht re; much le.vs to da.-h the world in pieces.
I’r.f. Olmsted remarks that iu sui-li an event no:
a {article of the comet would reach the earth —
tliat the ptirtions encountered by her would be
arrested by the atmosphere, and probably inflamed;
and that they would perhaps exhibit on a more
maLrnlficent scale than was ever before observed,
tli'j phenomena of shooting .stars, or meteoric
showers. The idea, therefore, that comets arc
dangerous visitants to our system has more sup-
j lil t fr'-un superstition than from reason orsfionco.
Such is the extreme lightness or tenuity of com-
etnrv bodies, thnt in all probability the entire mass
of the largest of them, if condensed to a solid
sith.-tance, would not amount to more than a few
hundred pounds. Sir Isaac Newton was of opinion
that if the tail of the largest comet was compressed
within the space of a cubic inch, it would not then
be as den.'C as atmospheric air. 1 ho comet of
1770 got entangled by attraction, among tho
moons of Juniter, on its way to the sun, and re-
‘ , r. ll.
leigh. with many useful tracts, aud these are eagerly ;
read by our men. I trust that when peace again settle;
upon our sunuy hills and dales, many a snn-burnt
irildier will have made his peace withG^-d aud become i
a soldier of the cross.
Col. Hill, iu his responsible position, commands the ;
respect and confiilence of all who comc in contact with j
him. Lt. Colonel Lee and .Maj. Lane are excellent ofli- •
oers and very popahir with the men—socialdeand geu- j
tleinanly in their intercourse, they are much beloved. I
This i.5 an excellent place to study human nature, and ]
to obrerve men as circumstances draw out their real
character. ;
Inactivity is the bane of the soldier's life. We want •
