"Tbe State troop* of Georgia now occupy fort* Pulaski and Jackson, and tbe U S Arsenal at !<avannah." We have to say, that yesterday morning we were Informed that the leader* In the current revolutionary movement had decreed that in the course of that day (yesterday) all the fortification* of the United States In the South should be taken possession of by armed mob*. Tbl* dispatch confirm* tbe truth of that design en their part. The telegraph will shortly inform us where else they may Uave successfully carried out the plan. We submit, that such action out of South Carolina (which is tbe only State that sets up the pretense of having seceded) I* neither more nor less than naked revolution?the voluntary inauguration of civil war on the part of the dlsunionista *e. That the disuninnists per it were known to contemplate the seizure of the U. S. fortifications In State* that have not pretended to have seceded, meaning u It does that they have usurped the Government there without awaiting the action ol State Conventions upon their schemes, explains why the working classes of citizens in Louisville. Ky , have been called on to band themselves so significantly against the plots of those who would deprive their families of bread, and reduce them to the condition of common soldiers in a time ol profound peace and universal prosperity, withoul the slightest shadow of lawful right to do so These lawless, desperate and over-ambitions men are, indeed, working evils for the people of the South, for which, aooner or later, they will be held to an awful responsibility by those witfc whose lives, bread and property they thus setktc play with, aa at other times they play with cardi at the poker table.

Chtraur dt fri*t and other obstruc- I tlons are being devised to drop Into tbe Channel < to prevent any vessels of war from coming in. < All the buoys in the channel are being removed, i and the lights on the coast will be extinguished < so soon as it is ascertained that any naval vessel i is approaching. The coast is the most danger- i ous in the country. The military on the coast, unuaed as thev are to such exposure and hardablps, aresuffering greatly. The weather has beeb quite cold, as well as damp and disagreeable, and their relative In tb? city are In great distress about them. The realities of practical secession are already found to be much more serloua than was anticipated, although the tbe first gun hss not been fired yet. A* yetlhere have been no clearances of vessels made out under tbe new regime. All vessels that have cleared since tbe '20th did so under United States papers made out and Issued to them befere tbe act of secession. Tbe first vessel thst arrives from Liverpool will create a mm pus, though It Is presumed no attempt will be made by Major Anderson to prevent her passing Into the city. Tbe Charleston Courier of Monday says : There were a variety of rumors afloat on Sunday concerning Fort Sumter Some went so far as to say that the United States troopswould be unable to hold out two weeks; that their provisions were of the most scanty character and that water was very warce. If this be so, and if it be true, as reported, that the larger one of the cisterns Is rendered useless because of the salt water that makes way into it, the soldiers cannot, by any possibility. hold*out longer than ten or fourteen days All the points froin which supplies can be obtained are rendered Inaccessible There is a strone guard of the Chnrl-ston Rlfle[ men stationed at the light-house on Morris' Island, even if a battery has not been erected there by this tlm? afi \17?a rAiitomnlatp/l HMa/?hm*nta nf ? ?* ? ? ? " VVMWV??? A/UIUVUIUI.il *0 V* South Carolina troops are in possession of the post . at Fort Johnson, while Sullivan's Island and Mount Pleasant, as well as this city, are rendered ) inaccessible to them for supplies. The remainr ing cistern of the fort it is said is so befouled , with stagnant water that to drink of it would be to partake of death and disease. The only ree mainlng way for them to procure water or provisions will be by boats or vessels, and?even this mode will be cut oft by the smxll crafts and steamboats that are constantly cruising around on the watch. . In deserting Fort Moultrie, military men say Major Anderson did aa little harm to the works as ^ it was possible for him to do. He might have blown up the work, or might have injured it to such a degree that it would have been rendered worthless, even after a year's labor had been spent * in repairing it. As It now is. to-morrow night will see it almost as strongly fortified as it was on " the 20th. Contrary to expectation, none of the guns of the fort are materially injured. Those that were spiked were rendered useless for the . time being only. The instruments used to stop up the touch-holes were simply wrought nails. moat of which have already been taken out. None ^ of the guns were Injured by tbe application of tar either inside or outside. In relation to other points of defence In the har? bor. a great deal has been said on tbe street, and since tb? affair at Fort Sumter, there has evidently e b?*en a disposition to crumble because more active steps have not been taken in throwing up breastworks and batteries on all available points. Those 51 who consider the subject, however, will see that [ until the act of evacuating Moultrie and occupancy ? of Sumter was consummated, tbere was a mutual agreement between South Carolina and the federal ?
