t 4 c rottehig Nariettian. "Impartial---but not Neutral." ,Acutletta, Oa. SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1861. SECESSION SCRAPS l High authority announces that the policy of the Admin istration, towards the Secessionists, is entirely changed. Henceforth it will be conciliatory but firm in the execution of the laws. The President approve& the conduct of Major Anderson, on the ground that he had tangible evidence of the intention, on the part of the South Carolinians, to seize and , occupy Fort Sumpter. Subsequent disclosures have satisfied those well informed, that such was the intention. Once in occupancy of Sumpter, Major Anderson would have been powerless and at the mercy of the Carolinians. No reinforcement of Fort Moultrie could have been made effectual for the recovery of Fort Sumpter. Maj. Anderson being in command, took a mil- Rant view, and anticipated the South Carolinians by proceeding to the strong hold they coveted, under the cover of the night. Upon these considerations, the President also refused to interfere for the withdrawal of the United States forces, saying "This I cannot do, and I will not do." He also announced his firm determina tion to collect the revenues, and that the property now in the occupancy of the troops of SOuth 'Carolina must be re stored. The seizure of the U. S. Ar senal be deems a high-handed outrage. On Monday last, after 3 o'clock, the re ply of the President was addressed to the Hons. Rhett, Orr and Adams, and delivered by the Presidents's secretary. On its reception great mortification was evinced at the non recognition of the title of Commissioners by which they had des ignated themselves. . Secretary-of-War Holt has appointed Capt. Charles Stone, on recommendation of Gen. Scott, to be Inspector-General of Militia in the District of Columbia. To him is entrusted the important duty of immediately organizing the District Militia, to repel invasion, suppress insur rection and preserve public property.— Stone's commission will be issued by the President to-day. He is a West Point graduate, and Scott has the highest opinion of him. The Washington Star states that Gov. Letcher is open and loud in his denun ciations of the advice of the Enquirer and Examiner, and says that no expedi tion against Washington shall leave the Old Dominion while he is its chief mag istrate, and thus commands its regular military force. • The steam frigate Brooklyn and anoth er vessel at Norfolk have been ordered to be in readiness for immediate depar -tare to Charleston. The Brooklyn's cruise is up, and her crew aro waiting to be paid off and discharged. But the emergency is considered too pressing to admit it. Any attack on Major Anderson or Fort Sumpter, by the Carolinians, will be followed by sending out frigates, ma rines and troops. Troops will be sent to Fourt Moultrie from Norfolk, where there are eight companies, and southern fortifications will be reinforced also. Prominent members of the Democratic party at the North assure the President that he will be sustained, and that if the "stars and stripes" are declared by him to be in danger, there will be no lack o stout. arms to defend it. A FIGHTING CABINET OFFICER : The New York Sun learns from a gentleman whose authority is a letter from a well informed friend in Washington, that a challenge from Secretary Floyd to Sec retary Thompson, in consequence of the latter attempting to connect Mr. Floyd's name with the Indian Trust Fund Rob bery, is probable. It is a matter of com mon report that Floyd has, on occasions, when his acts as head of the War De partment have been subjects of consid eration in Cabinet Council, stormed and bullied in a manner to intimidate his associates. The members of the South Caro lina Assembly sit with their hats on.— The Clerk, clothed like an Episcopal clergyman, calls the roll. The Messen ger, in front of the Speaker's room, strikes his staff on the floor, crying out, "Make way for the Speaker," the Door keeper repeats it loudly with three heavy raps of his staff; and then the Speaker himself, clothed in a rich blue nazarine robe, marches up the aisle to his seat. arm, a dinner at the President's, given to the , Judea of the Supreuie Court, Chief Alsace Taney remarked that he should administer the oath of office to Mr. Lincoln, if he was obliged to go to Springfield to do it, vaIDIDICSIIVALIWIIIMIDIOWINIMIOII64I2 WASHINGTON ITEMS.--ItObOrt T. Scott, of Virginia, and Stephens, of Georgia, are said to havo been tendered posts in the Cabinet by. Mr. Lincoln. The Mississippi delegation urge upon Secretary Thompson the propriety of re- signing. It is rumored that forces have been sent to Charleston already for the strengthening of Fort Sumpter and the Federal position. The Cabinet resolved not to withdraw Major Anderson from Charleston, but are uudecided on reinforcing him. The President 'has sent a letter to General Floyd, accepting his resigna tion. In it he expresses the hope that peace will soon be restored to the coun try. Postmaster Holt will occupy the lead ing position in the War Department, and will be seconded by General Scott in reforming existing abuses. • Mr. Buchanan, it is said,•is becoming more decided now that be is relieved from the counsels of Cobb and Floyd, and he evinces a more decided determi nation to execute the laws.. The Secessionists are moved with ap prehensions of an attack on the house in which the South Carolina Commissioners reside. Mayor Barrett has assured a Republi can Senator that there is no reason to apprehend vioNnee here, either when the votes shall be counted, or at the In auguration. He says that the'people of the District can preserve order, and maintain the supremacy of the laws.• Brevet Major Washington, says .Lin coin shall be inaugurated peaceably in Washington, and ridicules the threatened surrender of the Capitol to the secessioe ists, in spite of the encouragpment given to such a project by "The Constitntion." The President was heard the other day to say that the. South Carolina Commis sioners had made nolormal - demand on him of any kind. The Commissioners tell the Southern navy officers who med itate resigning, that there will be no em ployment for them South at present, nor until the Southern Confederacy is form ed. This is regarded as evidence of a disposition to discourage any- further res,. ignations. There are half a dozen tolerably good volunteer companies here; three of them organized as a battalion, but probably not more than two hundred and fifty men could be mustered, and they have no artillery. If the fears of those who dread revolution are realized, the - dashing dra goons of the Virginia mountains, and the well disciplined volunteers of Rich mond, might easily take and hold the me tropolis. GEL CAMERON AND TUE CABINET : A dispatch was received a few days since by a citizen of Harrisburg stating that Mr. Lincoln had appointed Senator Cam eron as Secretary of the Treasury under the new administration. Mr. Cameron is now at Springfield, and the dispatch states that he has accepted the appoint ment. The authority for this informa tion is deemed reliable at Harrisburg, and a strong antagonism is expressed against the appointment of Mr. Cameron to any place in the new Cabinet. It is also stated that Mr. Lincoln telegraphed to A. K. McClure to go to Springfield, which summons which Mr. McC. imme diately responded to. If the appoint ment of Mr. Cameron should prove cor rect, it will somewhat damage the "reli able authority" for the selection OfTudge Wilmot, as Pennsylvania can hardly ex pect to fill two seats in the circle of the President's advisors.. The Troy Daily Times contains two letters from General Wool, taking strong grounds in favor of the Union, and in favor of sustaining _Anderson in his position at Fort Sumpter, and earn estly urging that a firm ground be adopt ed to put down rebellion. He declares that if Fort Sumpter be surrendered to the secessionists, in twenty days , two hundred thousand men would be in read iness to take vengeance on all who would betray the Union into the bands of its enemies. ar One of the most dismal signs of the times, so far as the Seceders are con cerned, is tho rapid decline in the value of negroes. A. Washington gentleman, who lately returned from Virginia, says that the greatest consternation prevails in that State on this account, and that many of the richest slave holders talk of selling out and moving to the North. ilar Gov. Sam Huston, of Texas, the "old San Jacinto War Horse," has at length, yielded to the outside pressure and convened the Legislature, in extra session on the 21st of January to consid er the present crisis. The Convention of the people met on the 28th instant.— The secession feeling is in the ascendant. Colonel Hardee; late commandant at West Point, is now in New York, and a few days ago admitted that he was there for the purpose of purchasing guns and ammunition of war for the State of Georgia. He is thus receiving the pay of the-Federal Government, and, at the same time, assisting to ruin it. Gil -Bigler, of Pennsylvania, meeting John Cochrane casually in the hall at Willard's Hotel, said, "What about this Bailey fraud, Cochrane ; do you hear anything in addition . ?" "Oh," replied Cochrane, "there is nothing Addition, it's all in Subtraction." "BLACK REPUBLICANS."—This term, applied as a reproach to the Republican party by their opponents, is like bloody instructions, returning "to plague the inventors." The slaves have been taught to believe that the Republican Presi dent and Vice President are "black," and that, of course, with men of their own color in power, they will become free ! It is by no means improbable, therefore, that this deliberate and wicked injustice to ns, may retaliate fearfully upon them selves. EXTRAORDINARY PHENOMENON.-MiSR Ormsbee, a citizen of Warren, R. 1., has boen deprived of sight and the power to articulate' a single word for the last fifty-five piers. About three weeks ago, as she described it, without any extra effort on her own part, she began to con verse, and now holds conversation with all who visit her. Miss Ormsbee is now 75 years old, and became dumb when she was 20 years of age. ATTEMPT TO MURDER A. CLERGYMAN.- A few nights since the Rev. Mt. Buchan, residing at Stirling, C. W. was struck twice over the head while in bed, and jumping up seized his assailant, who proved to be his housekeeper, Mrs. Mc- Avoy, who confessed to intending to murder him and then rob and set fire to the house. She was sent to jail, ANOTHER HONOR CONFERED..--PTOL Morse has just received from the King of Portugal the Cross of Chevalier of the Order of the Tower and Sword, being the fifth titlo of that character which has been bestowed upon him by European sovereigns for his invention of the tele graph. NEWS IN BRIEF The Washington National Intolligen cer has carefully examined the laws of the Northern States relating to the Fu gitive Slave Law, and finds that Ver mont, Massachusetts, Michigan and Wis consin are the only States which, have unconstitutional laws about fugitive slaves. Somo one proposes a:military dicta_ torsbip under General Scott as a solu tion for our troubles. The veteran, cov ered with .honorable wounds obtained in his country's wars, would scout such a proposition as Washington did the crown offered to him during the ievolution. Petitions aro in circulation in Michi gan 'asking the Legislature of the State to repeal tho personal liberty law now on the statue book. It is said to be ex tensively signed by the Republicans. Caleb Cushing is in Washington mous ing after the place of the late Justice Daniels on the Supreme Bench. The Post-office Department continues to receive the resignatioes of South Car. olina postmasters, who give as a reason that they are out of the Union. It is reported that a Western Demo crat urgod the sending of troops to Fort Moultrie, to which Mr: Buchanan re plied : "No I I cannot do it. If I did, I should be assassinated right here in the house." The telegraph informs us of a power ful movement for the repeal of the Mas sachusetts Personal Liberty Bills. We have not a doubt they will be erased from the statutes of the State. =I The French and Spanish Cassels at Charleston have given the cold shoulder to the Secessionists, who desired their co-operation in their, treason_ It is stated that Mr. Breekinridge is about to declare strongly against seces sion. Such a declaration from him would do' good. It would have done more before the election. The Pope's finances are said to be in a very bad condition.

Charlestonians were subscri bing liberally to the testimonial for Caleb Cushing, but when it was announced he had denied that he authorized, the hoist ing•of the Palmetto flag on one of his steamers, the subscriptions were discon tinued and the money returned to the original owners. Cr Gen. Scott says that Fort Moultrie is not the strongest 'fortification, but Fort Surnpfer is, and that 260 men can hold it against all South Carolina, and GOO men can defy the world. CO' A letter from Charleston, pub lished in the New York World, says that the table upon which the Declara tion of Independence of the United States was signed, is now in possession of a lady in that city. On the 20th she was urged by the Secessionists to per mit them to use it for the signing of their Declaration. The lady told the commit tee who made the ropiest, that rather than have tho ordinance of secession signed thereon, she would burn the table to ashes. Certain members of Congress have gone to Washington, taken the oath to support the Constitution, and are receiv ing their regular pay from the public treasury; and yet they devote all their energies, as they themselves will not deny, to bringing about the destruction of the Union. It may not always seem courteous to call things by their right _names, but, if -it were, we should feel strongly tempted to charge the gentle- Men in - question with perjury, swindling, and treason. 00- There is a woman in Bernards town, Maine, over fifty years old, who drinks one quart of laudanum and two quarts of ether per week, and has been in the habit of using these . stimulents to this extent for twenty years.
