Charleston a brought about by the
traitors who were nearly "playtd out,"
and it was necessary for them to do me
thinj.au l ih it quickly. ' Th.j Charleston
JI:rcury. a fev days before the outbreak,
"The country is sinking into a fatal
apathy, and the spirit and even the patri
otism oi the people is -oozing out under
this do-nothing, policy. If something ia
not done pretty soon, decisive, either
evacuation expulsion, the whole country
will become so disgust d Willi the sham
of Southern independence that the first
chauoo the people get ul a populor elec
tion, they will turn, the whole movement
top?y turvy so bid than it never on earth
can be rigtiud again.1'
It wai the intention of thu- Government
to evacuate Ft. Sumter a-soon as it could
be done with any degree ot honor. Tho
traitors, however, demanded its surrend
er, which, of course, was re' Used by the
Administration. Maj. Anderson's sup
plies ot provisions were cut od by order
of the President of the 'so-called Southern
Confederacy, and the President of ihe
United Stales, of course, was bound to
fetd the soldiers ; peaceably if posil l ,,
or if not thus permitted, them by force.
Before even an att inpt mold be made, on
the part of the V. S. authorities to provis
ion Major Anderson, ht was called upon
to surrender. B fusing to tin this the
fort was attacked, and the n b graph col
umns furnislr the re.-uli. This, to be
brief, was the touimencem nt of hostili
ties, and on ihe heads of the disunion
leaders rests the responsibility.
It is useless to sp -culate on thr future
results; God only knows. This much,
however, we are couincd of. that the
Administration having thus far acted
purely on ihe deft n ive, will continue to
do so. Bat in so dou-.y, no child's j I i
need be looked for; muters will be pros
ecuted with the unatest possible v;gor.
We are glad to see that ihe North i a
unit upon the question of sustaining ihe
Government. Republicans, Democrats,
and Americans say that the hour for po
litical speculation has passed. Civil war
is upon us, and it is now the business of
the Government to "pursue such a course
as will most speedily and tdlectually si
lence the trailers and re-establish the
supremacy of law and order. The immor
ial sentiment rf Stephen Decatur is the
motto of ihe people "May my country
ever de right; but riciit or WKO.NO,
MY COUNTRY ALWAYS."
We quote the udlowing from the Co-,
lumbus Fait, a Breckenridge paper;
lVesidtiit I.inei!n i. called ujxn by the popular

will mast ppeedily nnd most cfTeetunlly silenee th

Men wiio tolerated slavery as acompritiie ncce
sary to the union of tho States, will not be fouud
pandering to the base appetites of a Siaifhern oli
garchy, and it. is necessary thatc 'ftondom ho taught
this truth. Where there is no liberty there can be
no Democracy, and the great Democratic party that
establishea and maintained the uni.'n of' these
States thus far,will be found as a unit rallying un
der the bai.ncr handed down to a generation who
are taught to reverence Jefferson, and worship Wash
ington as the Father of hia country. I; i too la c.

JeiT. Davis and his drunken minions
have inaugurated this uncalled for, ibis
unholy, this traitorous war. Now let the
peoji'e of this great and glorious country
