THE WAR NEWS !
VIRGINIA ARMED AGAINST THE UNION—PRO
CLAMATION BY Ting GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA.
Itionmown, April 18.—WHEREAS, seven of
the States formerly composing a part of the
United States, have, by the authority of their
people, solemnly resumed the powers granted
by them to the United States, and have framed
a constitution and organized a government for
themselves, to which the people of those States
are yielding wilting obedience, and have so
notified the President of the United States by
all formalities incident to such action, and
thereby become to the United States a separate,
independent, and foreign power:
And whereas, The Constitution of the United
States has invested Congress with the sole power
fiito declare war," and until such declaration
is made, the President has no authority to call
for an extraordinary force to wage offensive
war against any foreign power : And whereas,
On the 15th inst., the President of the United
States, in plain violation of the Constitution,
issued a proclamation calling for a force of
seventy-five thousand men, to cause the laws
of the United States to be duly executed over
a people who are no longer a part of the Union,
and in said proclamation threatens to exert
this unusual force to compel obedience to his
mandates: and whereas, The General Assembly
of Virginia, by a majority approaching to en
tire unanimity, declared at its last session that
the State of Virginia would consider such an
exertion 9f force as a virtual declaration of
war, to be resisted by all the power at the
command of Virginia ; and, subsequently, the
Convention now in session, representing the
sovereignty of this State, has re-affirmed in
substance the same policy, with almost equal
unanimity ; And whereas, The State of Virginia
deeply sympathizes with the Southern States
in the wrongs they have suffered, and in the
position they have assumed; and having made
earnest efforts peaceably to compose the differ
ences which have severed the Union, and hav
ing failed in that attempt, through this unwar
ranted act on the part of the President; and it
is believed that the influences which operate to
produce this proclamation against the seceded
States, will be brought to bear upon this Com
nionwealth, if she should exercise her un
doubted right to resume the powers granted
by her .people, 'and it is due to the honor of
Virginia that an improper exercise of force
against her people should be repelled: There
fore, I, Jonn LETCHEB, Governor of the Com
monwealth of Virginia, have thought proper to
order all armed volunteer regiments or compa
nies within this State forthwith to hold them- ,
selves in readiness for immediate orders, and
upon the reception of this proclamation to
report to the Adjutant-General of the State
their organization and numbers, and prepare
theniselves for efficient service. Such compa
nies as are not armed and equipped will report
that - I•oot, that they may be properly supplied,
Iniyeitness whereof, I have hereunto set my
,hani?and caused the seal of the Commonwealth
to be affixed, this 17th day of April, 1861, and
in the eighty-fifth year of the Commonwealth.
REPLY TO SECRETARY CAMERON.
RICHMOND, VA., April 16, 1561.
Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War:
I received your telegram of the 15th, the gen
uineness of which I doubted. Since that time
I have received your communication, mailed
the same day, in which I am requested to detach
from the militia of the State of Virginia " the
quota designated in a table," which you append.
"to serve as infantry or riflemen for the period
of three months, unless sooner discharged."
In reply to this communication, I have only
to say; that the militia of Virginia will not be
furnished to the powers at Washington, for
any such übe or purpose as they have in view.
Your object is to subjugate the Southern
States, and a requisition made upon me for
such an object—an object, in my judgment,
not within the purview of the Constitution, or
the act. of 1795—wi1l not be complied with.
You have chosen to inaugurate civil war, and
having done so, we will meet it, in a spirit as
determined as the Administration has exhibited
towards the South. Respectfully,
HARPER'S PERRY ARMORY—GOSPORT NAVY
WASHINGTON, April 18.—News reached here
yesterday that ,the Secessionists at Harper's
Ferry were taking steps to seize the Arsenal
before the Pennsylvania volunteers could arrive
there to garrison it, and last night the Secre
tary of War received a telegraph from Col. Bar
bour, the Superintendent, urging the immedi
ate acceptance of his resignation, proffered
'When he passed through here to take his seat
in the Virginia Convention. Ile has been on
the Secession side at Richmond, and will doubt
less be retained as Superintendent, if the Vir
ginians take possession of the Arsenal. It also
seems that the Gospart Navy Yard has been so
invested as to prevent the taking away of our
national vessels,and in all probability not many
days will pass before the " Stars and Stripes"
will only float on Forts Monroe and Washing
ton, in the Old Dominion. '
The Star, of this afternoon, states that it has
received a special dispatch, with the assurance
that the rumors relative to the capture of the
Arsenal at Harper's Ferry, and the destruction
of the railroad at that point, are untrue ; and
has also received dispatches equally as late,
containing the assurance that the rumors rela
tive to the Gosport Navy Yard, and the sinking
of the vessels at the mouth of Elizabeth river,
General Jackson persevered in having the
fort established, and it is now near enough to
completion to be useful. The supplies which
'the New York papers declared were sent to
Charleston harbor, to be used for a grand mili
tarfand naval scheme for the reinforcement of
Fort Sumpter, were partially destined for Fort
Jefferson, which can now " laugh a siege to
THE TORTUGAS SAFE
Whatever other strongholds may have been
deliverediup, it is believed that we still hold
Fort Jefferson, at the Tortugas, which is the
"Key to the Gulf," and can render privateer
ing a dangerous business, by serving as a pro
tection for the rendezvous for our naval force
in its harbor. This fort was thus described in a
report made by Commodore Rogers to General
Jackson, in 1829 :
"Besides affording a safe anchorage at all sea
sons of the year, it is sufficiently capacious to
ride in security all the navies .of Europe; but
what is most singular, there is within this har
bor another, still more secure, which in its
character may be said to be unique, uniting,
as it deep, sufficient depths of water for ships of
the largest class, to a narrow entrance, not
more than one hundred and twenty yards wide;
easy of ingress and egress ; and may be entered
or departeifrom at all times, let the wind be froti
what point of the compass it may."
THE DEFENCE OF THE CAPITAL.
WASEITYGTON, April 18.—The clerks of the
state Department have been formed into a
guard for the protection of the building. Those
of the Treasury Department have received or
ders to repair to the Department on the first
alarm of invasion. The clerks of the other
Departments have similar directions, and to act
in addition to the military force placed in the
The rumors of an intended invasion of Wash
ington to-night have excited much alarm.
Whatever may be the ground for such reports,
it is certain that the Government is expedi
tiously making preparations for all emergen
The Kansas men here have formed a com
pany called the Frontier Guards. They have
been given the post of honor in the east room
of the President's house, under the command
of Major Hunter. So many houses have been
offered, free of charge, by citizens, for the
quartering of troops, that it is unnecessary to
rent any more for that purpose.
Midnight.---Everything seems quiet since the
volunteers have come on. A sense of relief
pervades the entire community. The city
seems quite deserted, large numbers of our
citizens having left during the panic of to•day.

PROCLAMATION OF GOV. HICKS TO THE PEOPLE
To the People of Maryland :
The unfortunate state of affairs now existing
in the country has greatly excited the people
In consequence of our peculiar position, it is
not to be expected that the people of the State
can unanimously agree upob. the best ntode of
preserving the honor and integrity of the State,
and of maintaining within her limits that peace
so earnestly desired by all good citizens.
The emergency is great. The consequences
of a rash step will be fearful. It is the im
perative duty of every true son of Maryland
to do all that can tend to arrtst the threatened
evil. I therefore council tEe people, in all
earnestness, to withhold their hands from what
ever may tend to precipitate us into the gulf of
discord and ruin gaping to receive us.
I counsel the people to abstain from all heated
controversy upon the subject ; to avoid all
things that tend to crimination and recrimina
tion ; to believe that the origin of our evil day
may well be forgotten now, by every patriot,
in the earnest desire to avert from us its fruit.
All powers vested in the Governor of the
State will be strenuously exerted to preserve
the peace and maintain inviolate the honor and
integrity of Maryland.
I call upon ttie people to 'obey the laws, and
to aid the constituted authorities is their en
deavors to preserve the fair fame of our State
I assure the people that no troops will be sent
from Maryland, unless it may be for the defence
of the National Capital.
It is my intention in the future, as it has
been my endeavor in the past, to preserve the
people of Maryland from civil war ; and I in
voke the assistance of every true and loyal citi
zen to aid me to this end.
The people of this State will, in a short time,
have the opportunity afforded them, in a special
election for Members of Congress of the 'United
States, to express their devotion to the 'Union
or their desire to see it broken up.
Ts. H. Hions,
Governor of Maryland.

from Norfolk received at the Navy Department

INSUBORDINATION AT PENSACODA.—We have
lately recorded a n umber of acts of insubordi
nation among the Confederate troops at Pen
sacola. The lest case of the kind that has
reached us is taken from the Pensacola. Gazette.
That se er
says that a difficulty occurred
between two members of the Chipola Rifles,
f ro m Jackson county, which is likely to termi
nate fatally to one of the parties. The dispute
arose as to the relative strength of two men,
when the lie was passed, and a man named
Joel Brown received a blow on the head from
a stick of wood in the hands of the other man,
whose name we did not learn. Brown's skull
was badly fractured, and he was conveyed to
the hospital. The assailant escaped. We have
since learned that Brown is dead."
