in view of the preparations looking to
an attack making by . South Carolina.—
An officer of the navy, just arrived from

vate letter from Sumpter states that
Major Anderson is fully prepared to re
sist any attack. The columbiads, which
were not mounted when he took posses
sion of the fort, are now all in readiness
to give good report of themselves. One
of these guns was discharged the other
night, to try it, and all Charleston was

The Secessionists not likeing the con

It is perhaps fortunate for some of the
South Carolina leaders that they haven't

South Carolina is a great fool for going

South Carolina complains of the de

In Nervous Affections of all kinds, and for
